When divorcing in Texas, there may come a question of spousal support from one person to the other. One simple action that must be taken is to ask the court for spousal support. You must be able to prove that, even with any separate property that you may own that isn’t a part of the divorce proceeding, you aren’t able to maintain the lifestyle to which you are accustomed.
The court will look at the fact that your spouse may have been convicted of family violence, in the past or recently, and that you and your attorney are filing the correct documentation to prove this allegation. Having a lawyer from the Law Office of Nancy H. Boler, who has multiple years in dealing with this type of case, is a good idea. They are experienced and know what to present to the court for a favorable outcome for you.
If you are unable to earn enough to meet you minimum needs and you are in custody of the children from the marriage, and one or more of the children needs special supervision due to a mental or physical disability, you definitely have a case and need someone in your corner who can guide and assist with this claim.
It is totally up to the court to decide the nature, amount of payment, how long you will receive the payments, and how they will be made. Your attorney needs to know all the factors involved and having an attorney who knows what questions to ask you will be a big help.
The court will consider your and your spouse’s financial standing when making a determination. The judge will also look into how long you were married, your earning potential based on your employment history and your physical and emotional condition when making a determination on spousal support.
Asking an attorney to assist you through this spousal support issue is something that will be a benefit to you in the end.
