Attorneys Fees Providing Legal Support for You and Your Family

Family Law Attorney's Fees in Philadelphia

Generally in a divorce matter, each spouse is responsible for his or her attorney’s fees. However, in some cases, one spouse may be ordered by the court to pay the other spouse’s attorney’s fees. This is typically dependent on each spouse and the facts of the case. At the Law Office of Smith & Horwitz, we have experience seeking attorney’s fees for one spouse and defending against claims from one spouse.

In some cases, a settlement can be negotiated where one spouse is responsible for the attorney’s fees for the other. Typically, the fee arrangement must be reasonable and based on the attorney’s hourly rate.

It is often possible to petition the court for attorney’s fees pending resolution of the divorce. We have experience in bringing these petitions for interim counsel fees on behalf of our clients in circumstances where one party does not have the funds to continue litigation.

At the Law Office of Smith & Horwitz, we can help you understand your rights and obligations in regard to divorce attorney fees. We offer straightforward divorce advice. We will let you know what is possible and aggressively pursue your interests.
