Say I hired a lawyer to represent me in court case filed against me by a tenant.
A. I pay lawyer /court fee out of pocket in advance, and if I win, the losing party supposed to pay me back to cover court/ lawyer expenses etc.
B. I do not pay in advance lawyer/court fees until the end of the court, and if I win, losing party is supposed to cover court / lawyer expenses
Which way it does actually happen in real life? A or B?
My fear is that if I pay all in advance, even if I win, the other party might not to pay me back, and I will have to engage "collection" mechanism to get money back.
