Alimony and Spousal Support Attorney – Kingwood, Texas
At the McNamara Law Office in Kingwood, Texas, we offer experienced representation and strong advocacy for clients in divorces where spousal support is an issue.
Texas family law now allows alimony, and it is becoming more commonly awarded. The McNamara Law Office represents both clients who are seeking spousal support and those who may be obligated to pay alimony. Our goal is to advocate for a fair spousal support order that is favorable to our client.
Resolution of Spousal Support Disputes in Texas
Divorce often involves a number of financial issues, including marital property division as well as child support and spousal support. At the McNamara Law Office, I aggressively advocate for our clients’ financial interests.
Unlike child support, which is subject to statutory calculation guidelines, spousal support is not awarded in every case and the amount is not determined by a formula. Qualification for alimony depends on a number of issues, including disability or other situation involving a spouse’s inability to work; insufficient assets; and availability of job training or other options to increase the spouse’s earning ability.
Spousal support can be ordered during the divorce process, on a temporary basis, or long-term. The length of the spousal support obligation is generally related to the amount of time it will take for the lower-earning spouse to develop the skills necessary to support him or herself after the divorce.
At the McNamara Law Office, we believe it is always in our clients’ best interest to exhaust all options for a negotiated settlement before considering taking the case to trial. We recommend taking part in mediation or collaborative law to develop a spousal support agreement you both can live with. When a trial is in your best interest, however, attorney Brian J. McNamara is an experienced trial lawyer who will protect your rights and strongly advocate for your financial interests.
