Can I Have My Spouse Pay for My Legal Costs in Bergen County?

You can have your spouse pay your legal fees if you spouse agrees or the court orders your spouse to pay all or a portion of them while the divorce action is pending and or at the time the judge grants the divorce.  However, you are ultimately responsible for paying your bills regardless of whether or not you spouse has an obligation to pay them.  The court can order one party to pay the counsel fees of the other party based on certain factors, including the financial circumstances of the parties and the reasonableness of the positions advanced by the parties during and prior to trial.
