San Antonio Spousal Support Lawyer
Financial Support After a Divorce
Family Lawyer Mysti Murphy in San Antonio, Texas
Spousal support, also known as alimony, is a common issue in many divorce cases. One spouse believes he or she requires the financial assistance of the other spouse, at least temporarily. This makes sense in cases in which one spouse may not be able to support him or herself after the divorce. Perhaps a spouse will have difficulty getting back into the workforce because he or she didn’t work during the marriage, being either a stay-at-home parent or owing to a disability.
The challenge in spousal support cases is that there is no clear guideline to determine who should get it, how long they should get it and how much they should get. That is why it is important to have the assistance of an experienced attorney. At the law office of Mysti Murphy, we will take great care to see that the issue of spousal support is addressed fairly and logically.
Modifying and Terminating Spousal Support
Spousal support is intended to be temporary. Along with determining the exact amount of spousal support, the judge will determine how long the support will be provided. Often, it is for a very short period of time after the divorce.
During that time, it can be modified if there is a significant change in circumstances, such as the loss of a job or a promotion to a job that pays more. We can assist with the process of seeking or stopping modifications.
Spousal support can also be terminated in a variety of situations. If the spouse receiving support is remarried, that spouse is no longer eligible for spousal support. Similarly, if that spouse enters into a cohabiting relationship, support can be terminated. We can assist with the process of seeking or stopping termination of alimony.
