Dallas Spousal Support Lawyer
Understanding Spousal Maintenance
During the divorce process, the court will have the ability to order one partner in a marriage to pay the other for monthly spousal support. Also known as maintenance or alimony, spousal support is often one of the most concerning, impacting, and serious issues in family law. As your financial circumstances will be greatly affected by spousal support orders, you need to be certain that the firm you choose to work with has the experience, insight, and determination to protect your interests, no matter which side of the courtroom you are on. At the Mathur Law Offices, P.C., our talented Dallas divorce lawyers are here to meet your needs as you navigate through every aspect of your divorce.
In Texas, a former spouse will be eligible for spousal support when it is determined by the court that they lack sufficient property or the financial means to meet minimum reasonable needs. A number of factors will be considered when determining spousal support, including:
- Each spouse's financial circumstances, including debts and assets
- The education and employment skills of each spouse and the time needed to acquire education or training to earn a sufficient income
- The length of the marriage
- Age, employment history, earning abilities, and physical or emotional conditions of each spouse
- Marital misconduct, including issues of domestic violence
- Contributions of spouses as homemakers
- Issues involving children, including child custody
Each party will have the opportunity to present evidence that supports their case and their interests in securing or limiting spousal support. Having an attorney by your side is essential to preparing your case and maintaining the best possible chances of obtaining the order you need. The duration of any spousal support order will also be influenced by similar considerations, particularly the length of marriage. The amount of time is takes for a spouse to become financially independent will also play an important role.
