At the Law Office of Xochitl A. Ambriz, before we dive into the details of a contested divorce, we will try to spot the issues that may be agreed upon.
After which, we schedule divorce mediation and settlement conferences where we try to eliminate as many issues as possible.
We then compile a Rule 11 Agreement, which ultimately limits the number of issues that will go before the court. The more we can figure out before your court date and list in the agreement, the faster the process will be.
Alimony in Texas
In Texas it is difficult to be awarded what is commonly referred to as alimony, and in Texas is called post-divorce spousal maintenance. The Texas Family Code states several factors the court should take into consideration, such as the length of marriage, acts of family violence, ability to support himself or herself due to disability, whether a child has a disability and earning ability in the labor market.
