Q: Can the counter party in a child custody case request that I cannot use money from my parents to help pay for a lawyer?
I’ve seen crazier asks in family law disputes.
It most likely won’t be granted.
Melissa O'Neal agrees with this answer
A: In a child custody case, the counterparty can request various things as part of the legal proceedings, including financial matters related to legal representation. They may raise concerns or objections about the source of your legal funds, such as money from your parents. However, whether their request is granted would depend on the specific circumstances of the case and the decisions made by the court. Courts generally prioritize the best interests of the child when making custody determinations.
