Kingwood and The Woodlands, Texas Alimony Attorney

Kingwood and The Woodlands Spousal Support Lawyer

Alimony or spousal support refers to ongoing payments that one spouse will pay to the other during divorce proceedings (as temporary alimony) or afterward (as contractual or court-ordered alimony). In most cases, alimony is part of a contractual agreement reached by spouses during property division settlement negotiations or mediation prior to a divorce.

However, in some cases, family law courts will mandate spousal support, particularly in the case of a long-term marriage where one spouse is not able to meet his or her minimum financial needs, or due to a physical or mental disability a spouse is unable to work.

How Will Property Division and Alimony Relate?

Some husbands and wives use alimony as a "wild card" or bargaining tool in property division settlement negotiations. In consultation with tax accountants, they may determine that there are tax advantages for one or both in a particular combination of asset distribution and spousal support. Individual circumstances vary. An experienced divorce lawyer such as Steven Byers in Kingwood and The Woodlands, Texas, is well qualified to facilitate and expedite consultations with CPAs and other steps that can help determine whether alimony makes sense in your case.
