Family Law Firm McCleskey Law Firm Lubbock, Texas

Alimony/Spousal Support

Texas law provides for very limited spousal support (sometimes called alimony) for former spouses who meet the criteria outlined in Texas’ spousal support law. The family attorneys at McCleskey, Harriger, Brazill & Graf are well-versed in Texas’ “alimony” laws and can guide divorcing clients through the process and advocate for their best interests every step of the way.

Spousal support in Texas is sometimes awarded to former spouses, depending on the financial needs of the dependent spouse and the ability of the non-dependent spouse to pay such support. Other factors come into play as well, including the parties’ education and earning potential, duration of the marriage, the couples’ standard of living, and whether there are disabilities or illnesses to consider. The court may also consider whether there was fault in a marriage’s dissolution.

We have represented spouses looking to minimize their spousal support obligations, as well as those looking to maximize what they receive in spousal support. We are prepared to advocate for our clients’ best interests before trial, during mediation, at trial and on appeal.

For several generations, McCleskey has provided Lubbock businesses and individuals with exceptional law services. We strive to help our clients succeed and prosper, even after any legal dispute is resolved. By doing so with integrity and a commitment to excellence, we hope to make our West Texas community, including the surrounding region, a great place to call home.
