How Is Alimony Decided?

Alimony is the payment sometimes made from one spouse to the other after a divorce. There are three main types of alimony: permanent, rehabilitative, and lump-sum. It is always best for two spouses seeking a divorce to come to an alimony agreement without involving the court. However, this is often not possible due to disagreements and difficult emotions. While alimony (or spousal support) is not always mandatory in Texas, it is often ordered for marriages that have lasted 10 or more years. If left up to the court, they will use a number of factors to determine who should pay spousal support, for how long, and what type of alimony will be paid.

The factors considered include the:

  • Age of each spouse
  • Duration of the marriage
  • Earnings of each spouse
  • Marital standard of living
  • Education/earning ability of each spouse
  • Tax implications
  • Physical state of each spouse

Discuss Your Needs for Alimony with a Lawyer

Once alimony has been ordered by the court, it is not optional and must be paid exactly the way it has been ordered. However, it is possible to seek a modification if circumstances have changed drastically since the time of the divorce order. Our Sugar Land family law attorney at Kutty Law Firm, PLLC can help you navigate the initial alimony issues involved in divorce, as well as modifications.
