Court Orders Ex-spouse to Pay Our Client’s Attorney Fees

In the spring of 2007, Mrs. A retained the Cantor Law Group based upon a personal referral from another prominent local attorney. Mrs. A was having issues with her ex husband’s parenting time, drug use, failure to pay medical expenses, and failure to pay child support. At the beginning of the case, Mrs. A was owed approximately $45,000 in back child support and another $6,000 in past due medical expenses from her ex-husband.

Over the course of two hearings, our attorney received a $20,000 payment from the opposing party after he was incarcerated pursuant to our request citing Arizona Revised Statute 25-502(1), (which I refer to as the “Dead Beat Dad” statute) which allows the Court to set “purge” amounts and arrest warrants. Mrs. A. was awarded a judgment for 100% of her attorney’s fees and 100% of the past due medical expenses. The Court also awarded Mrs. A the parenting time she requested and ordered Father to drug test. In an effort to prevent future payment issues, our attorney requested an received a Court order that should Father fail to pay on time in the future, he will be incarcerated and won’t be released until he pays all remaining arrearages.
