* A party's ability to pay his or her own fee

* The beneficial results obtained by an attorney

* The respective financial conditions of the parties

* The effect of the fees on each party's standard of living

* The degree of fault of either party making the divorce action necessary

* The reasonableness of the attorney's fee request
