Payments made to a spouse after divorce are known as spousal maintenance in Texas. The specific amount to be paid can be decided by the spouses or a court will arrive at an amount determined to be appropriate. Our Killeen spousal maintenance attorney can fully inform you of the process of assigning support and work to ensure that a fair amount is decided upon.

In most cases, the court will assume no support is necessary, so whomever is seeking spousal maintenance will need to convince the court they have made a good faith effort to earn an income or learn the skills needed to provide for themselves during separation or divorce proceedings.
If ordered to pay maintenance, your monthly payments cannot be more than $5,000 or 20% of your average gross monthly income, whichever is less.
You may petition to receive maintenance from your spouse and our Killeen lawyer can work to present your case so you secure all the support you are entitled to. Whether you are seeking maintenance or it is being sought from you, the Law Office of Brett H. Pritchard can work to ensure you are treated fairly at all times.
