This case involved a client who walked into our Cantor Law Group Tempe office having already settled her divorce with another attorney. Her ex-husband then filed an Appeal challenging the decision of the Trial Court giving Mrs. C child support, spousal maintenance, and attorney’s fees. Her ex-husband was claiming that Mrs. C was not entitled to spousal maintenance and that child support had been incorrectly calculated. Specifically, in regards to his income, he claimed that attorney’s fees should not have been awarded and child support should have been reduced.
We filed the response on behalf of Mrs. C and then argued in front of the Court of Appeals. The Court of Appeals listened intently to arguments on both sides, and then took the case “under advisement.” This means we had to wait a little bit until they issued their written ruling. When the ruling was issued, the Court of Appeals ruled in our client’s favor on all issues. This included the determination of her ex-husband’s income, the amount of child support, and the awarding of attorney’s fees. They even went so far as to award Mrs. C the attorney’s fees on the Appeal itself. This means that she didn’t have to pay us for the work we performed; her ex-husband did!
