Denton County Alimony Lawyer

Hire a Skilled Lewisville Family Law Attorney

Divorce can have a detrimental financial impact on one spouse if they were dependent on the other spouse for the majority of their financial support. For example, a stay-at-home mother may not have a job immediately after her divorce and, even if she did, it may not pay enough to be able to support the standard of living to which she had grown accustomed.

Alimony provides a means for a lower-income spouse to receive support during and after the divorce process until they are able to support themselves. Alimony is also known as spousal support or maintenance.

Determining the Amount of Spousal Support

Under Texas Family Code § 8.055, the court cannot order alimony that requires the obligor to pay more than whichever is lesser: $5,000 or 20% of the spouse's average monthly gross income. The amount of support that the lesser income spouse receives is determined by the court when the two spouses cannot come to their own agreement.

If you are looking to receive support, you must be able to prove how much the supporting spouse is able to pay, as well as the amount of support you need in order to match the standard of living to which you had grown accustomed, or as close as possible. You will need to hire a skilled Flower Mound & Lewisville divorce lawyer in order to do so.
