How is Spousal Support Determined in Texas?

Texas courts have a variety of factors to consider when determining the amount and duration of Spousal Support to be paid.

Factors include:

  • Duration of the marriage
  • Existence of any children with physical or mental disabilities
  • Marital misconduct or family violence
  • The ability to be employed and the ability to provide for minimum financial needs
  • The contribution as a homemaker
  • The ability of the supporting spouse to provide for the other spouse and pay child support
  • Unnecessary expenditure of community property by either party

Even if the other spouse has been convicted of domestic violence, courts usually assume that an order for spousal support is not appropriate and therefore must be convinced otherwise based on the above criteria.

How Long Do You Have to Be Married to Get Spousal Support?

In Texas, spousal maintenance is generally awarded in divorce cases where the marriage lasted 10 years or longer. Cases involving domestic violence during or soon after the divorce may also qualify for spousal support, as can cases where the parties simply come to an agreement about spousal maintenance. Wondering if you qualify for spousal support in Texas? Consult a spousal maintenance attorney at Coker, Robb & Cannon today!
