  • § 689. Attorney’s fees

    In making determinations pursuant to this subchapter, the court may award attorney’s fees and costs based on the court’s consideration of:

    (1) Unreasonable failure of either party to accommodate the other party in parental rights and responsibilities or parent-child contact matters related to a deploying parent. A parent’s refusal to accommodate the other parent shall not be considered unreasonable if the parent demonstrates a reasonable fear for his or her safety or the safety of his or her child.

    (2) Unreasonable delay caused by either party in resolving parental rights and responsibilities or parent-child contact related to a deploying parent.

    (3) Failure of either party to provide timely information about income and earnings information to the other party.

    (4) Other factors as the court may consider appropriate and as may be required by law. (Added 2009, No. 69 (Adj. Sess.), § 2, eff. March 3, 2010.)
