  • What is the minimum number of years of marriage in order for spousal maintenance to be considered in Texas?

    I have interviewed a couple of attorneys as I seek representation during my divorce. One attorney said a couple had to married for at least 10 years, another said 8. Both are very experienced family law lawyers. Which is correct?

    Bobby’s Answer

    The 10 year mark is the most common reason used to apply for maintenance. The code provides for additional circumstances.

    (A) is unable to earn sufficient income to provide for the spouse's minimum reasonable needs because of an incapacitating physical or mental disability;

    (B) has been married to the other spouse for 10 years or longer and lacks the ability to earn sufficient income to provide for the spouse's minimum reasonable needs; or

    (C) is the custodian of a child of the marriage of any age who requires substantial care and personal supervision because of a physical or mental disability that prevents the spouse from earning sufficient income to provide for the spouse's minimum reasonable needs.

    Bobby’s Answer

    You should have a visitaion schedule that you can enforce. She cannot decide that you will not see your children. Next, you can file to have the court modify the custody portion of the current order. You should consider meeting with local attorneys to go over all the facts so that they can offer informed advice.
