Attorneys Fees


#1

Are dependent spouses still entitled attorneys fees when said fees are paid for by her family? Can she claim they are a loan even though I know the money is not being loaned but given?

My family is not paying for my attorney and I am incurring debt to pay for an attorney while my spouse (dependent spouse) has nearly unlimited funds from her family.

The dependant spouse can still seek attorney’s fees from the supporting spouse even if someone else has paid the upfront cost.
