The firm on behalf of our matrimonial client filed a contempt application after the parties’ divorce based on the non-compliance of his ex-spouse with regard to certain financial aspects of the parties’ agreement and judgment of divorce. While the parties’ settled the underlying application, the client was allowed to file a motion seeking attorney fees for having to bring the application to court. After submissions by both parties, the client was awarded $2,000.00 in attorney fees. The Judge reasoned that “based on the nature and extent of legal services provided, the quality of the representation and the results achieve, the nature and complexity of the issues before the court…,” an award of $2,000.00 was reasonable.
