Spousal support, also referred to as alimony or spousal maintenance, is not automatic in Texas divorce cases. Because of limited availability, it is critical to carefully evaluate all the circumstances such as the length of the marriage, evidence that the recipient spouse cannot meet his or her minimum reasonable needs without it, the other spouse's ability to pay, and any disabilities.
Whether you are seeking spousal support or trying to defend against it, an experienced family law attorney can help make the best case to support your position. At Christiansen Law Firm, our attorneys have significant experience in family law cases.
Eligibility for spousal support can have a direct impact on the rest of your divorce proceeding. It gives the spouse likely to seek support a certain amount of leverage in negotiations for things like custody and visitation, property division, child support and other areas that an attorney must be ready to address.
Termination of spousal support may occur if the recipient spouse remarries or enters into a cohabitation arrangement. There are also limits as to duration and amount. Our experience in these matters allows us to work much more efficiently to protect your interests and fight for a favorable resolution of your case.
