Your attorney does NOT have a contract with your ex husband. She has a contract with you. She doesn't have to bill your ex husband. She can bill you. YOU are responsible for making sure your attorney is paid. If your ex doesn't pay, then you take him back to court for contempt.

Thank you for providing your state name, van-wright.

Ohiogal gave you the answer to your question.

You are the one who is contractually obligated to pay your attorney. You should forward onto your ex-husband a copy of the attorney bills you receive (perhaps with a copy of the court order) and demand he pay what he was ordered to pay or, if you already have paid your attorney in full, demand he reimburse you for half of what you paid - with the threat of a contempt of court filing if he doesn't.

Good luck.
