Helping You Achieve Your Spousal Support Goals

Texas laws governing spousal support — what some still call alimony — and how they are applied are not well understood by most people. Today, the majority of Texas divorces result in no spousal support awards or orders at all. If you believe that you should receive spousal support or that your divorcing spouse will seek it, there is no time to lose in seeking qualified legal counsel.

Clear, Realistic Legal Information And Effective Advocacy In Divorce

Attorneys Jill and John Setzer have many years of experience protecting clients’ interests in financially complex divorce cases. Our clients appreciate her direct communication style and honesty when evaluating goals that may not be attainable, based on her close familiarity with Tarrant County and Denton County court rulings.

When circumstances do justify payment of spousal support or both parties believe it is appropriate, they are adept at:

  • Establishing a strong basis for payment of substantial spousal support after a long-term marriage, when a nonworking spouse has limited earning capacity and under other qualifying circumstances, or
  • Defending against an unreasonable demand for spousal support, either by contesting the need for such payments altogether or seeking to limit the amount or duration
