28 Mar Spousal Support Is Not Guaranteed
In Texas, alimony is called spousal support or spousal maintenance. Spousal support provides a spouse with periodic payments from the former spouse’s future income that continues after the divorce. Spousal support is not automatically ordered. Many factors are considered by the Court when determining if spousal support is appropriate, such as each spouse’s financial resources, education and employment skills, and the length of the marriage. To find out if you may qualify to receive spousal support, you should consult with an experienced family law attorney.
