Will I Have to Reimburse My Divorce Lawyer for Certain Costs?

Typically, divorcing spouses have a variety of professionals working with them, and they come with a variety of fees. You may be ultimately responsible for paying your attorney, appraisers, and accountants, and other types of experts. If you have children, the court could appoint a guardian ad litem to represent your kids interests or a custody evaluator to make custody recommendations; youll also be responsible for these costs.

Your attorney will also incur many costs on your behalf, including for filing fees, transcripts, court reporters, and subpoenas, and youll need to reimburse your lawyer for these types of litigation expenses.
