Need Help with Spousal Support?

Skilled Representation by a Denton County & Collin County Divorce Lawyer

Spousal support is regular payments made to a spouse to provide support during or after a divorce. Divorcing spouses can agree to spousal support terms or have them determined by a court. When you are going through a divorce, our Collin County divorce attorney can help you determine if you are eligible for maintenance.

At Coker, Robb & Cannon, Family Lawyers, we put more than 95 years of collective experience to work on behalf of each client we work with. We understand how difficult and emotional divorce proceedings are and how important it is to protect your rights at all times and ensure you are treated fairly. This is why we provide compassionate and personalized support when you deal with family law issues.

How is Spousal Support determined?

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.
