Sometimes, a married individual makes much less than their spouse or doesn’t work in order to be a stay-at-home parent or for other reasons. When such a married individual gets divorced, there are many financial worries they may have. One such worry is whether they will have enough resources moving forward to meet their different needs and expenses.
One divorce issue that can be a big one for individuals coming from this sort of situation is the issue of spousal support. Alimony, when granted in a divorce, can sometimes help a person who is in a much weaker situation income-wise than their ex-spouse address the financial difficulties that can come from suddenly being off on their own.
Now, not all divorces here in Texas end up with a spousal support award being granted in them. There are a variety of different factors that can play a role in whether a court would grant an alimony award in a given divorce.
Understanding what things can be impactful when it comes to the issue of spousal support here in Texas can be very important when in negotiations with an ex-spouse over this issue or in court proceedings regarding this issue.
