The Tribal Court from time to time, after considering the financial resources of both parties, may order a party to pay a reasonable amount to the other party for the costs and expenses of maintaining or defending any proceeding under this article. For the purpose of this article, costs and expenses may include fees of a spokesperson, mediator, peacemaker or attorney, deposition costs and such other reasonable expenses as the Tribal Court finds necessary to the full and proper presentation of the action, including any appeal. The Tribal Court may order all such amounts paid directly to the attorney, spokesperson, mediator or peacemaker who may enforce the order in his or her name with the same force and effect, and in the same manner, as if the order had been made on behalf of any party to the action.
