Collin County Alimony Lawyer & Spousal Support Attorneys
In divorce cases, the court can order one spouse to pay alimony or spousal support to the other spouse, either while the divorce is pending or for a limited time after the divorce is finalized. This is known as “spousal maintenance,” a statute first introduced in Texas in 1997. The limits of the duration of a spousal maintenance order are based on the length of the marriage.
Spousal maintenance is determined based in a complete examination of the income levels of both spouses and the marital property settlement. Spousal maintenance is not automatic in divorce cases, and not every divorcee will be required to pay alimony or spousal support. In these cases, a strong argument needs to be made on both sides.
Phillip Linder is a qualified Collin County alimony attorney with a complete understanding of the Texas spousal maintenance laws. He is prepared to represent you on either side of a spousal maintenance case. Whether you are the spouse who is seeking support, or the one who would likely be required to pay it, he will work to ensure that your interests are protected.
