Spousal Support in Carrollton
Helping You Secure the Results You Deserve
In the state of Texas, spousal support, also referred to as spousal maintenance or alimony, is awarded to ensure a spouse’s reasonable needs are met while seeking employment or education after the divorce. There are limitations in the law when rendering a decision regarding spousal support.

Spousal Support Considerations
Although the amount of spousal support is based on a formulaic equation, judges have complete discretion when determining if it should be awarded. During this process, a judge may consider many factors, including:
- If either spouse is a homemaker
- Either spouse’s culpability for the break-up of the marriage
- The individual needs of each spouse
- Educational factors
- Employment factors
- Amount of assets and property each spouse is receiving in the settlement
