Can I Get Alimony in a Texas Divorce?

In Texas, you may be able to get alimony, also called spousal maintenance, during the divorce process. Spousal maintenance is available after a divorce in Texas if the spouse seeking it will not receive enough property in the divorce to provide for their basic needs, and one of a few other limited circumstances exists, such as domestic violence during the marriage or the need to care for a child with a disability. If you think you will need spousal maintenance after your divorce, you must get the help of an experienced Texas family law attorney.
