A Spouse Ordered to Pay Attorneys Fees During a Divorce in Arizona

U.S. News and World Report Best Law Firms ArizonaSome people ask can my spouse be ordered to pay my attorney fees in an Arizona divorce? The Arizona divorce laws permit the Court to order one spouse to pay some or all of the other spouse’s attorney fees and costs.  Although there are many different statutes that provide the court with this authority, the most cited statute is A.R.S. 24-324.

That statute allows a divorce judge to order one spouse to pay some or all of the other spouse’s attorney fees and costs. The statute requires the trial court to consider how reasonable both parties have been, as well as the parties’ respective financial resources to be able to pay those attorney fees and costs.

The Arizona Court of Appeals in the Myrick v. Maloney case provided a good discussion from the court of appeals regarding a judge’s discretion to balance both factors (reasonableness and disparity in financial resources) to award or decline an award of attorneys fees.
