When will Alimony be Awarded in Texas?

Alimony, otherwise known as spousal maintenance in the state of Texas is a common term used for a regular payment one spouse makes to the other spouse during or after a divorce.  The money is from the former spouse's future income. This money is in addition to the division of marital property or child support that might be part of a divorce settlement. It can be agreed by both spouses or a court of law may order it be paid. The court can order spousal maintenance if the spouse seeking support will not have enough property at the time of the divorce to provide for basic needs and one of the following circumstances exists:

What is Sole Managing Conservatorship and When Should it be Awarded?

When clients come into the Puhl Law Group, LLP seeking assistance for a divorce or a child custody case we often hear the question, "Can I receive sole custody of my child?" Custody in Texas is called "conservatorship." Conservatorship is used to describe the legal rights and responsibilities of a parent. In Texas, a judge may give conservatorship to one or both parents. A judge can grant sole managing conservatorship, joint managing conservatorship or possessory conservatorship. It is not easy to receive sole managing conservatorship. In general, the court wants meaningful relationships with both parents to be established and giving one parent all the cards is ordinarily not a great idea.
