Board-Certified Family Law Specialist* · American College of Family Trial Lawyers
Texas law is very specific regarding the awarding of spousal support in divorce judgments. Marriages must typically be of a long-term duration for one party to be considered for an award. The spouse seeking alimony must also prove that a hardship would result if some amount of support is not awarded, either on a temporary or permanent basis. In many cases, spousal maintenance may be awarded on a temporary basis, to help one spouse meet a specific need such as job training, college education, a health care need or residence in the house for a determined amount of time.
The laws regarding spousal maintenance are complex and judges in different jurisdictions will interpret the laws differently. If you are filing for divorce in which spousal maintenance will be an important financial consideration, make sure your attorney understands the laws and local expectations.

We Find Ways to Take the Emotion Out of the Issue of Alimony
Alimony is often a contentious issue that results in acrimony between the parties, even when all other issues can be resolved amicably. By applying skilled negotiation strategies and taking a common sense approach to finding a collaborative agreement, we can often diffuse the emotions and arrive at a solution that makes sense to the parties and will be acceptable to the courts. Avoiding a costly trial often means avoiding future problems among the parties, after the dust has settled on the divorce.
