ok so we are back in court after 7 years. Ex has an atty and I don't because I don't think I need one and don't want to waste the money that I could be using on my family. We are doing visitation and child support. I'm afraid they are going to ask me to pay some or all of his attys fees. How do I avoid this happening? Any suggestions or family law codes?

In my state you are required to have an attorney as you cant be one in the place for your kids.

I think you should get a lawyer to protect your self.

Good Luck

To answer your specific question, attorney fees are awarded at the judge s discretion. In child support modification cases the losing party may be ordered to pay the others attorney fees. This is to discourage senseless litigation.

I agree you should get a lawyer. Too much at stake.

You have been given good advice by the folks on this forum. Absolutely hire an attorney. Unless you are proficient in U.S. Code pertaining to Divorce & custody. Yes, you could end up paying attorney fee's. You could also lose custody. I suspect it maybe over now and I hope things went in your favor. Take care.
