Having the right attorney is essential to getting the best possible result in your case. The right attorney should be knowledgeable and experienced in the area of law they practice. The attorney must be reasonably priced and fight to get attorney’s fees when possible.

Family Code Section 2030 (a) provides that any award of attorney’s fees or costs in a marital action must be based on:

  1. A determination of ability to pay, and;
  2. Consideration of the parties’ respective incomes and needs in order to ensure that each party’s access to legal representation to preserve all of his or her rights.

Awards of attorney fees and costs under the Family Code may be made at any time “during the pendency” of any marital action. The awards may be made for services rendered and costs incurred before, as well as after, commencement of the proceeding.
