Alimony/Maintenance/Spousal Support in a Texas Divorce

Maintenance or Alimony in Texas is governed by Chapter 8 of the Family Code. The Court will weigh many factors in determining maintenance. Thus, a determination by the court of an award for maintenance can be complex as the facts of each case are evaluated by the court. In order to pursue an "uncontested case for divorce" you must settle any maintenance issues before you file your complaint. Ideally, you will have negotiated a "maintenance" amount, if appropriate and incorporated this amount into your Marital Separation Agreement. This makes your case an "uncontested case."
