Resolving Issues of Spousal Support Pre and Post Divorce
The APFFEL LAW FIRM has helped many clients resolve issues of spousal support both before and after divorce. Whenever possible, our Galveston family law attorneys encourage clients to use mediation as a means to arrive at an equitable spousal support settlement agreement.
When Spousal Support is Called For
Texas Family Code recommendations typically assume that a marriage will have a ten year or longer history in order for spousal support to be called for. Perhaps one spouse has stayed home to raise children, or has supported the other through professional education, and does not possess the job skills necessary to be self-supporting right away.
