In a divorce proceeding, an award of attorney's fees to a party that is payable to the party's attorney, is considered to be an award to the party and not to the party's attorney. In Coppola v. Coppola the Florida Court of Appeal recently stated: "That report and recommendation specifically stated as follows: 'The former husband's request for an award of attorney's fees and costs is hereby granted and the former wife shall, within thirty (30) days of this order, pay to the former husband $31,163.36. Payment shall be made to the former husband's legal counsel at the address set forth within the certificate of service below.'
