Hurst Spousal Support Attorney

Southlake spousal support attorney

Tarrant County Spousal Support Lawyer Serving Hurst, TX

Alimony is almost non-existent in Texas. If there is a dispute over spousal maintenance after your divorce, I can help you understand Texas state law so you know exactly what your rights are. I am attorney Daniel R. Bacalis, P.C., and I have nearly 40 years of experience helping individuals in North Texas move on with their lives and protect their rights after a divorce.

I am Board Certified in family law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, and I have helped clients with a wide variety of concerns. Although spousal maintenance is rare in Texas, there are certain circumstances where it is possible. I am straight with all my clients about their situations. I will explain your options in plain English, so you know exactly what you are likely to receive and the challenges you face.

Determining Alimony Eligibility

Just because alimony is rare, that does not mean it is impossible to receive it. The state of Texas recognizes that some people are in situations where spousal support is necessary. In most cases, it is only awarded to couples who have been married for over ten years or in situations where family violence has occurred. In some cases, the parties contractually agree to pay spousal maintenance to help equalize their property division.

Coming Up With a Fair Spousal Maintenance Plan

If you are eligible for alimony, the next step is to figure out a plan where it is the most advantageous for both people. If you receive too much in spousal support, your taxes may increase to a point where it is no longer advantageous. I can help you understand the tax implications for both the paying and the receiving party.
