Spousal Maintenance


In Texas, spousal support and spousal maintenance (both often referred to as alimony) serve different purposes:

  • Spousal support is temporary financial support paid to the non-earning spouse during the course of the divorce.
  • Spousal maintenance is ongoing support that is paid after the divorce is final.

If you need legal representation for a spousal support or maintenance matter in Texas, I, Bobby Dale Barina, am here to protect your rights and interests. As a Bell County spousal maintenance lawyer with more than 20 years of experience handling family law matters, I am prepared to help you pursue a financially stable, post-divorce future.

Spousal Support/Maintenance Factors In Texas

Courts take many factors into consideration when making spousal support and maintenance determinations. Key factors include:

  • The financial resources of each spouse
  • The education and marketable job skills of the spouse seeking support
  • The duration of the marriage
  • The contributions of one spouse to the education and job training of the other
  • Contributions to the marital household by the spouse seeking support

Whether you are seeking spousal support/maintenance or it is being sought from you, it is important to protect your rights. I have extensive experience representing people on both sides of this issue, and can provide you with the knowledgeable guidance and strong advocacy you need.
