Spousal Support Attorney
Practicing in Conroe, The Woodlands, Spring and Throughout Harris County and Montgomery County
Splitting one household into two is no easy task and many people who are getting divorced have financial concerns. A spouse who is not earning as much money as the other may consider requesting spousal maintenance, also known as spousal support or alimony.
At the Law Office of Jennifer Casey in The Woodlands, Texas, I guide my clients through complicated family law matters. As your lawyer, I can help you understand whether you are eligible for spousal support or whether you could be required to pay support. In spousal support cases, my goal is to help my clients come up with fair resolutions that protect their interests.
Ensuring Fair Spousal Support Arrangements
Under Texas law, spousal maintenance can be granted to divorcing spouses who lack financial independence. Spouses who earn significantly lower incomes than their partners and spouses who have been out of the workforce raising children are typical candidates for support.
The state uses a formula to determine how much spousal maintenance should be paid. However, these matters are rarely black and white.
In order to receive spousal support, a person must meet a number of criteria, including the inability to earn a sufficient income and provide for one’s basic needs.
As your attorney, I will carefully review your finances and your spouse’s finances in order to help you negotiate or prove your case. In addition to negotiating spousal support arrangements, I can also help you modify an existing order or have an existing order enforced.
