Am I Eligible for Spousal Support in Texas?

Court-ordered spousal maintenance is an option if the spouse seeking maintenance lacks sufficient income or assets to support themselves after the divorce.

Other terms of eligibility include the following:

  • The spouse seeking maintenance was married to the other spouse for at least 10 years and is not able to earn enough to provide for their minimum reasonable needs.
  • The spouse seeking maintenance cannot earn enough income due to a mental or physical disability.
  • The spouse seeking maintenance is the custodian of a child with a physical or mental disability who requires substantial care and the spouse does not earn enough to provide for their minimum reasonable needs.
  • The spouse seeking maintenance was a victim of family violence within two years of the divorce in which the abusive spouse received deferred adjudication or was convicted.

How Is Alimony Awarded?

The court not only determines whether a spouse receives maintenance, it also determines the amount, duration, and manner of these payments.

The following factors are considered when the court is determining maintenance:

  • The spouse’s financial resources after divorce and their ability to provide for their own reasonable minimum needs
  • The education and employability of the spouse
  • The length of the marriage
  • The age, employment history, earning ability, and physical or emotional condition of the spouse
  • The effect on the paying spouse’s ability to provide for their own minimum reasonable needs while paying alimony and/or child support if applicable
  • Any acts by either spouse that would result in excessive expenditures or destruction or concealment of common property
  • One spouse’s contributions to the other’s education, professional training, or increased earning power
  • The property brought into the marriage by either spouse
  • Either spouse’s contribution as a homemaker
  • Any marital misconduct or cruel treatment by either spouse during the marriage
  • Any pattern or history of family violence
