Spousal Support And Maintenance

If you are going through a divorce and you are concerned about receiving spousal support/alimony or if you are currently paying too much for spousal maintenance, contact me to discuss your options. At the Law Office of Michael D. Tracton, P.C., my staff and I work hard to ensure that after a divorce, each party is left in a positive position to begin rebuilding his or her life as well as the lives of the children with his or her former spouse. I seek fair and reasonable accommodations for my clients and ensure that they are being supported adequately.

Factors Used To Determine Spousal Support

Texas recognizes the accomplishments and/or sacrifice of a spouse who has given up on his or her education or career advancements to care for the child or children. Spousal support payments can be affected, depending on the length and quality of the marriage. Certain factors will be considered regarding both parties to determine the amount of spousal support or maintenance including:

  • Age
  • Incapacity
  • Physical and mental health
  • Current income
  • Future ability to earn an income
  • Marriage length
