How Does Spousal Support Work?

Alimony, called "spousal maintenance" in Texas, is often one of the most contentious issues during divorce. Often, emotions affect these proceedings just as much as financial issues. At Grimes & Fertitta, P.C., in Houston, Texas, and The Woodlands, we provide attentive and supportive counsel to clients in alimony determinations.

Will I Have To Pay Spousal Maintenance?

Spousal maintenance can be agreed upon by both spouses or ordered by a judge. The court must consider factors like each party's income, educational background and contributions to the household.

Often, fair spousal maintenance determinations depend on the ability to identify all relevant facts and assets. We have extensive experience with complex financial issues, large estates and business valuation, and we work with experts like financial advisers and investigators to fully protect your interests.

If your life changes and your spousal support arrangements are no longer reasonable, our lawyers can help you pursue a modification to your existing court order. If your spouse is failing to uphold his or her obligations to pay alimony, we can help you take steps to protect your interests.
