Will the judge make me pay for my ex’s lawyer?

Q: She hired a lawyer for custody, alimony/child support in the Bronx. I paid for all the divorce fees. She contested so that I can pay for her lawyers fees. Will the judge make me do that?

A: David’s Answer: It depends on the disparity of income, amongst other factors. The Judge may also consider whether your wife was given an interim award of maintenance and/or child support, as well as the respective merits of the parties’ positions. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Divorce attorney for a full assessment.
