Paying STBX attorney's fees

Went through a 3 day trial for PSS, and STBX’s attorney is now seeking over $3,000 in attorney fees. I cannot afford to pay for another trial. What happens if I’m unable to pay for attorney fees that are awarded?? Can they set up a payment plan?

If you don’t come to an agreement on the attorney’s fee award and how it will be paid, there will be another court hearing. At that hearing, you can make your argument why you shouldn’t have to pay your spouse’s attorney’s fees and what type of payment plan you can afford if you are ordered to do so.
