Alimony Rules in Texas

Texas has adopted “rehabilitation alimony.” Generally, alimony may be awarded to a spouse if the marriage was of at least 10 years duration and the spouse who is seeking alimony lacks sufficient property to provide for their minimum reasonable needs and:

  1. is unable to support himself or herself through appropriate employment because of an incapacitating physical or mental disability;
  2. is the custodian of a child with a physical or mental disability that precludes employment outside the home; or
  3. clearly lacks earning ability in the labor market to provide for their minimum reasonable needs.

If you or your spouse is seeking alimony, let us help explain the requirements and make sure you qualify for the financial support you are seeking.
