Ensuring The Amount Is Fair
Spousal support — also referred to spousal maintenance or alimony — is typically granted to the less financially independent party. The person receiving support must lack the assets to provide for his or her minimum reasonable needs. He or she must also meet certain criteria such as an inability to earn sufficient income due to an incapacitating mental or physical condition. I will carefully review your finances and provide clear direction regarding how to proceed. Based on my experience, I can explain the spousal support statute and how the regulations can impact your specific situation.
Changes to Texas family law have increased the length of time spousal support may be granted. Except in rare cases, spousal support is granted on a temporary basis. Depending on the length of the marriage and other factors, spousal support may be granted for up to five, seven or 10 years. As these factors can be complex, it is wise to seek the counsel of an experienced family law attorney.
