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 the state of Texas, an alimony court order is referred to as spousal maintenance.

Spousal maintenance may be ordered when a divorcing spouse does not have the financial means to meet basic needs, as long as the spouse meets the following qualifying circumstances:

  • A physical or mental disability prevents the spouse from working
  • The couple was married for 10 years or longer
  • The one seeking spousal maintenance has a child from the marriage who requires supervision or special care due to a physical or mental disability
  • The spouse seeking support (or his or her child) was physically abused within two years of filing for divorce or during the divorce process
