Sean McKissick, of Downey Brand LLP, has made available for download his article, “No Bad Faith Required – Trustee of Spendthrift Trust May Be Compelled to Pay Attorney Fees Under Family Code Section 2030”, published in JDSUPRA. The abstract is as follows:
Section 2030 of California’s Family Code provides an important safeguard to ensure the fairness of marriage dissolution proceedings. It allows the Court to order a more financially well-off party to pay some or all of the other party’s attorney fees, beginning as early as the start of the proceedings. Section 2030 was enacted to put divorcing parties on equal footing.
