Spousal Support vs. Spousal Maintenance

In Texas, the goal of spousal support, also referred to as alimony, is to help the lower-earning spouse through a divorce. Generally speaking, spousal support is not designed to last indefinitely. In Texas, it is usually limited to three years since it is designed to help the lower-earning spouse work towards self-sufficiency after the divorce is finalized.

Determining Spousal Support Payments

When going through a divorce, the courts will decide who must pay spousal support to whom and how much and how frequently one must make these payments. A judge will examine a variety of factors before rendering a decision on this matter.

When determining spousal support, a judge will consider:

  • The length of the marriage
  • The financial contributions made by each spouse to the household
  • Whether one spouse supported the other’s education or training
  • Whether one spouse sacrificed a career in favor of being a homemaker or stay-at-home parent
  • The education, training, and experience level of each spouse in their field
  • The current income and the potential earning capacity of each spouse
  • Extenuating circumstances or special needs

We Offer Mediation Services

Although a judge can determine spousal support for you, you and your spouse have the option to resolve this issue outside of court. Our Temple spousal support attorney is also a certified mediator and can help you resolve this matter outside of court. Mediation can go a long way in helping you finalize your divorce more quickly and with less tension.
