Having been a mainstay of the family law community in Dallas for more than five decades, our Texas law firm serves as a reliable legal resource for individuals who need experienced, thorough legal advice and powerful representation in their divorce cases.
In Texas, spousal maintenance — also known as support or alimony — is not automatically granted during divorce. Instead, the court takes into consideration many factors when deciding to award a spouse warranted alimony. Those factors include:
- The length of the marriage
- The age of both spouses
- The health of both spouses
- The education of each spouse
- The employability of each spouse
- The financial needs of the spouse seeking support
- The paying spouse’s ability to provide support
- Marital misconduct by either spouse
Depending on what the court deems fit according to the above factors, it may grant parties temporary or permanent spousal maintenance. Sometimes alimony is granted to a party during the time it takes for him or her to become self-sufficient through education and/or job training.
