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.

If you are in a similar situation where your ex-spouse is not paying what they owe, then click on contact us or call the Cantor Law Group to set an appointment today! Remember, we can often get the Court to order your ex-spouse to pay our attorney’s fees!
