Divorce and Family Law
Interim Attorney Fees
Illinois law governing divorce cases permits one of the divorcing spouses to request the divorce Court to order the other divorcing spouse to pay and/or contribute to his or her attorney’s fees during the course of the divorce case proceedings and before entry of the Final Divorce Decree. Generally, whether a divorcing spouse is entitled to an interim attorney’s fee award depends upon certain factors, including the spendable cash, bank accounts, and/or credit available to the spouse seeking attorney’s fees; the amount that the spouse seeking the attorney’s fees has paid to his or her attorney; the cash, bank accounts, and/or credit available to the spouse from whom the attorney’s fees are sought; and the amount paid to the attorney of the spouse from whom the attorney’s fees are sought.
