In California, my brother is filing for divorce. He was told by his lawyer (from firm specializing in divorce) that should his wife (from whom he is divorcing) wishes to obtain her own lawyer, he will be responsible for her legal fees as well. Could this be accurate? How can this be? She was not working at the time but will be soon. Would this change matters? She was living in New York for short while but is now in California. Would this change matters?
Thanx for any info!
