How Is Spousal Support Determined?
Not every person will be entitled to a support award. There are various requirements that must be met, and the court will review each case to determine if an award is appropriate and for how long the support should be received or paid.
The amount and duration of spousal support that may be awarded in Texas depends on several factors, including:
- The length of the marriage
- The ability of the spouse to provide for him or herself
- The earning ability of the spouse seeking alimony payments
- The contributions to the marriage from the alimony-seeking spouse
- The education and career skills of the spouse requesting support
