Pearland Alimony Attorney: Outstanding Representation
Alimony is usually temporary, awarded until the spouse receiving the support can reasonably be expected to make ends meet without support. However, there are some cases when alimony is permanent, for example, when the spouse receiving support is permanently disabled and unable to work.
Several factors are considered in determining spousal support, including:
- How long the marriage lasted
- The ability of each spouse to pay support
- How much money each spouse makes
- Whether a spouse is disabled
If circumstances change over time, it is possible to seek modification of spousal support. The court will consider the recent information to determine if the amount of alimony set is fair, too high, too low, or altogether unnecessary.
