Can one of the agreements in the divorce be to pay my attorney fees? 1 Answers as of November 05, 2010

I want to get a divorce from my husband because he is an alcoholic and I do not feel safe at home with him (we also have two children ages 4 and 7). I want to get a divorce but I do not know if I can afford it. Would it be possible to have him pay for all the divorce proceedings if he is the reason we are getting divorced?

Certainly, parties can negotiate responsibility for payment of attorney fees. If not agree upon, courts can make that determination based on both ability to pay and each parties contribution to unnecessary delay and cost of proceedings. For Minnesota matters call 612.240.805 or visit
