Family Law (Divorce, Family Relations)/Filing a motion

Advertisement


Question
In Florida... If a motion is filed because the other party is not cooperating with a mediation agreement where costs and fees are sought as well, are these fees and costs still payed by the client initially until the violating party is held accountable for reinbursement or does the client not have to worry about making payment at all?

Thanks

Answer
Hi Dave, this would be subject to any agreement between the motioning party and his or her attorney but generally the motioning party would initially be responsible for the fees and costs and then would be reimbursed if and when, the court awards such fees and costs and they are paid by the opposing party.
