Attorney’s Fees

The way in which your divorce is resolved will have a large impact on your life moving forward. With everything that is at stake, it is important to have a qualified, experienced attorney at your side from the beginning to the end. My name is Alan Robert Burton, Attorney at Law. I have more than 40 years of legal experience in the area of family law.

If your spouse earns substantially more than you do, or has access to assets that you don’t have access to, it is a natural concern that this imbalance will have a negative impact on your divorce.

However, under Florida law, you have the right to petition the court to order your spouse to pay reasonable attorney’s fees in a divorce, child custody action, child support matter or any other family law proceeding. You can even ask for attorney’s fees when seeking a modification of an existing order. Take advantage of this right and contact my firm to discuss your situation.

Palm Beach County Divorce Lawyer Who Can Help You Pursue Attorney’s Fees

When deciding whether or not to order the payment of attorney’s fees, the court will look at many factors. The main factors include the financial resources of each party and the marital assets and debts of each party. Courts have wide discretion in this area, and can require parties to sell or liquidate assets in order to pay for attorney’s fees. I have requested attorney’s fees numerous times and will work hard to present a compelling argument on your behalf.
