divorce lawyer Caroline ThompsonQuestion:

My ex-wife has filed for bankruptcy in an attempt to avoid paying my divorce attorney fees that were awarded to me based on the court finding her in contempt.

Can she avoid paying my attorney fees because she filed for bankruptcy? Or is that money considered to be support since it was a necessity for the well-being of our child?

Noblesville Indiana Divorce LawyerQuestion:

Would my ex-wife have to pay my divorce attorney fees if I have to take her back to court for contempt and she was found guilty?

She agreed to pay me a distributive award for marital debts within 30 days from the date the divorce was finalized. The deadline has passed, she has not paid, and I cannot get in touch with her.

Also, I believe she is about to file bankruptcy. There is specific language in the agreement that the distributive award should not be included in any bankruptcy claims, but my fear is she is going to try.

What are my options? If I have to re-hire legal counsel, would she have to pay my legal fees since she is in contempt of the agreement?

divorce lawyer Andrew LaufersQuestion:

I recently lost my job and filed motions to modify alimony and child support. My ex-wife's divorce attorney sent me a notice to produce at the hearing a statement showing the value of my 401k.

Why would her lawyer want to know the current value? Can she go after that in some way? I owe her thousands of dollars in attorney fees so is that it?

Noblesville Indiana Divorce LawyerQuestion:

I paid my wife the amount required for a divorce filing fee, but it's been several months and I have not heard anything.

Am I supposed to wait for someone to contact me for the process to start or is it possible my wife just kept the money and didn't file for divorce?

I was ordered to pay $3,000 of my ex's attorney fees from our divorce case. However, I never received any paperwork from the lawyer or the court detailing how to make payments, what fees and services I was paying for, etc.

A year later I received an invoice from the lawyer for almost $4,000. Do I have to pay this? Shouldn't I have been invoiced sooner, and how did the costs go up by $1,000?
