Can I Make My Spouse Pay My Divorce Attorney’s Fees?

Determining when and if a court will award attorney’s fees is a difficult task. This is because the trial judge is granted broad discretion in deciding what fees—if any—he or she will award to a spouse. If both spouses have roughly equal incomes, the court is less likely to find shifting fees appropriate. In divorces, a spouse or domestic partner can make that request in court but, the payment of attorney’s fees is difficult to predict in Michigan divorce cases.
