Corpus Christi Spousal Support Attorney
Texas Law Firm Helping People with Spousal Support and Related Matters
Spousal support is a form of payment that is made by one spouse to another spouse in the event of a divorce. Spousal support, commonly referred to as alimony, can be made on a long-term basis or a short-term basis. The duration of the payments will be decided by the judge that is presiding over the spouses' divorce case.
Usually, in order for a spouse to be eligible for spousal support, he/she must be able to prove that he/she is financially dependent on his/her her dependent partner. If a spouse is able to prove this, a judge may award him/her temporary or long-term spousal support payments. A judge may also review other relevant factors such as:
- the length of the marriage
- each spouse's occupation
- each spouse's annual income
- the financial needs of each spouse
- the material possessions of each spouse
- each spouse's debts
- each spouse's health
- any additional sources of income available to each spouse
