Texas Divorce Laws | Alimony

Texas

Alimony is awarded only in cases of marriage or civil union of ten years or longer and the payments are limited to three years unless there are special, extenuating circumstances. Texas divorce laws require that alimony is limited to three years because it is supposed to be temporary.Texas divorce laws state that grounds for divorce include irreconcilable differences and being unable to re-unite as well as adultery, abandonment, commitment to a mental health facility for three years, a felony conviction and imprisonment for at least one year, cruel and inhuman treatment, or living separately for at least three years.Texas child support laws use the Percentage of Income Formula to calculate how much support the non-custodial parent must pay. This formula applies a percentage to the income of the non-custodial parent based on the number of children that need support.
