Will I have to pay all my attorneys’ fees for my legal matter?

Under Missouri law, each party is typically responsible for his or her own attorneys’ fees. Where there are special circumstances, the Court has the discretion to order one party to pay the other’s attorneys’ fees. For example, if there is a great disparity in income and your spouse was the party earning the majority of the income, the Court may order your spouse to pay all or some of your attorneys’ fees. In addition, the Court may order a party to pay attorneys’ fees if there has been misconduct or dissipation of assets by one party.

Each family law matter is unique, so please speak to your attorney for additional information.
