When you’re going through a divorce, issues related to alimony or spousal support can be some of the most difficult upon which to agree. If you’ve been accustomed to a particular lifestyle, or if you’ve given up your career to take care of children or maintain the family home, going it on your own without some level of support may be frightening or simply inconceivable. On the other hand, you don’t want to be taken advantage of by an ex-spouse who’s not inclined to work or provide for himself or herself. Often, the most effective way to resolve these matters is with the advice and counsel of an experienced family lawyer.

Our Representation in Alimony/Spousal Support Disputes
We work with either party to an alimony dispute. We’ll carefully gather and evaluate the evidence to determine whether a spousal support award is warranted, looking at all the factors considered by Texas courts, including the length of the marriage, the age and health of the parties, the earning potential of the parties, the dissipation of assets by either party and the ability of the payor to meet the obligation.
If so, we’ll help you identify how much should be paid, how often and for how long. We can help you with any type of alimony claim, including requests for:
- Permanent alimony— Spousal support until death or remarriage, typically
- Temporary alimony— Payment for a specific period of time
- Rehabilitative alimony—Support until the recipient has become self-sufficient
