San Antonio Alimony Lawyer
Spousal Support Attorneys In San Antonio
At The Law Offices of Jon R. Disrud, Texas divorce lawyer Jon Disrud handles all issues related to marriage dissolution, including spousal support.
Under Texas law, a spouse can request alimony in certain situations, including:
- One spouse’s conviction of family violence two years prior to or during divorce proceedings
- A marriage lasting for 10 or more years in which one spouse does not have the resources necessary to support him or herself
- One spouse has a physical or mental disability that causes him or her to be unable to support him or herself, or has a child with a physical or mental disability
- One spouse is unable to earn a living that can support basic needs
The amount of spousal support and for how long it will be paid are determined by the family court judge. That is why it is so important to be represented by experienced board-certified Texas divorce and family law specialist* who will make sure decisions made regarding alimony are reasonable and fair to both parties.
Modification, Enforcement And Termination Of Spousal Support
Spousal support can be modified or terminated in the event that circumstances change significantly — for example, if either spouse loses his or her job or gets promoted.
