What is Alimony?

In Texas, courts can order payments from one spouse to another which is called Spousal Support. The primary purpose of spousal support, or alimony, is to ensure that a spouse is capable of affording their basic reasonable needs. Spousal support can be ordered during the pendency of the divorce or following the completion of a divorce depending on the factors of your case. Spousal support can be issued temporarily or long-term and can be modified under certain circumstances.

Alimony is not automatic in a divorce and there is no presumption that one party or the other will receive financial support. Texas family courts consider specific factors when deciding if financial support to a spouse will be awarded during a divorce. Our well-versed attorneys know the ins and outs of alimony so that we can provide you with the best protection and representation for your case.
