Attorney Fees?


What is the likelyhood that a judge will award attorney fee’s to my STBX? She has counter-claimed my complaint and requested that I pay her legal fees. She is the one who wanted the divorce, but wanted to putz around for 2 years and not do anything about it while living with her boyfriend. Now she want’s me to pay her legal fees. Grrrr.

My attorney said that judges usually use that as a punitive measure (not supposed to though) but since I pay substantial child support that I probably won’t have to pay it. But I would like other opinions on this matter as I am worried about it.
