How Is Spousal Support Determined in Texas?
Texas courts award spousal support on a case-by-case basis. Generally, spousal support is awarded only in certain situations and payments cannot exceed 20% of the payee’s gross monthly income or $5,000 (whichever is less).
Spousal support may be awarded in:
- Cases where an individual has been found guilty of domestic violence against his or her spouse or child within two years before the divorce filing or while the divorce action is pending
- Cases where a marriage has lasted 10 or more years, the spouse seeking maintenance does not have the economic means for support, and the spouse is disabled, is the main caretaker of a disabled child, or lacks the ability to earn a livelihood
- Cases where both parties have agreed on a certain amount of support
The courts will review various factors – such as each spouse’s education level, professional skills, and financial resources – to determine this issue. Support may be awarded for up to 5, 7, or 10 years depending on the unique circumstances of the case. You may also seek modifications to existing spousal support orders by proving a substantial change in circumstances necessitates the change.
