Getting Spousal Support from Your Ex After A Divorce

In the state of Texas, spousal support, sometimes called spousal maintenance or alimony, is awarded to ensure a spouse’s reasonable needs are met while seeking employment or education after the divorce. There are limitations in the law regarding when spousal support can be awarded and for how much, using a prescribed formula as a guide.

Our family lawyers at Malik & Associates, PLLC, are well-versed in spousal support cases and are available to provide guidance as to determining whether the award of spousal support is warranted, and how much you, as our clients, can expect to pay or receive.

Spousal Support Considerations

Although the amount of spousal support is based on a formulaic equation, judges have complete discretion in determining whether it is awarded in a divorce. In determining if spousal support is warranted in a case, a judge may consider many factors, such as:

  • Who, if anyone, is a homemaker
  • Who was to blame for the break-up of the marriage
  • The individual needs of each spouse
  • Education factors
  • Employment factors
  • Amount of assets/property each spouse is receiving in the settlement

Because each case is unique and has its’ own complexities, our attorneys work to understand your individualized needs and will fight for the best outcome we can for you, our client, with the law on our side.
