Yes, if you are the lower-earning spouse in a divorce in Queens, you can have attorney fees, filing fees, and other legal costs assigned to your spouse.
Depending on your circumstances and the specific terms of your divorce, you may have some or all of your legal fees awarded to your spouse.
While this can feel like paying to sue yourself to the wealthier spouse, awarding legal fees is a key way that the rights of less wealthy spouses are protected in New York’s divorce process.
The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can provide you with high quality, experienced legal guidance through your divorce, and make sure that you pay as little as possible.
