Understanding Alimony in Texas

Alimony is a legal term that refers to the ongoing financial support provided by one spouse to the other following divorce. The purpose of alimony is to ensure the financial well-being of a spouse who was financially dependent during the marriage and lacks the ability to provide for themselves, either immediately or indefinitely after the divorce. In Texas, a court order for alimony is called spousal maintenance.

The court can order spousal maintenance when one spouse does not have enough property to meet their basic needs, provided they meet a qualifying circumstance.

The qualifying circumstances include:

  • The spouse is unable to work because of a physical or mental disability
  • The couple was married for 10 years or longer
  • The spouse seeking alimony has a child of the marriage who requires special supervision and care due to mental or physical disability
  • The spouse who is seeking support (or his or her child) was physically abused within two years of filing for divorce or during the proceedings
