Spousal Maintenance & Texas Law

In Texas, alimony may be requested by either spouse in a divorce. The court will award alimony under specific circumstances:

  • One spouse does not have the financial resources to provide for his or her basic needs.
  • One spouse was convicted of an act of family violence within two years of filing for divorce.
  • One spouse is incapacitated, whether mentally or physically.
  • The marriage has lasted for at least ten years, and one spouse has been dependent on the other.
  • The spouse requesting support cares for a child who has a condition that requires specialized care due to a disability, preventing that parent from being able to work and earn a living.

The maximum amount of spousal maintenance payments in Texas cannot exceed 20 percent of your spouse’s current gross monthly income. The payments ordered will be for the shortest length of time possible for the individual to gain employment for self-support.
