Spousal Support: An Overview
Making sure each party is financially secure is an important part of divorce. There are many moving parts, and it can be difficult to know where to start. The Law Office of Brian Bagley, PLLC, has worked with clients throughout Texas. We are here to explain your rights so you can understand the process.
What Does The Court Consider?
Spousal support, also known as alimony, is meant to maintain the standard of living of each party. The court will look at a number of factors when determining if this is necessary. They will consider each spouse’s current income, the length of the marriage, the age of both parties and the physical condition of each partner. They will then decide if financial support is beneficial for both people involved.
Both parties have the right to state their case as to why they deserve support or don’t deserve to pay it. As your attorney, it is our job to be your advocate through this process. Understandably, many people are concerned about how these cases will affect their future. We can examine your case and discuss all of the options you are facing. It’s important to know that the spousal support agreement can be modified down the road, should either party’s lifestyle change.
