Understanding the Needs of Clients Who Have Experienced Multiple Divorces
Many of our Colleyville area clients are people who are experiencing a second or third divorce. As experienced lawyers, we know that multiple divorces can result in complex family structures. Often, these divorces involve complex assets and a challenging analysis of which property is community property and which is separate property.
Second and third divorces also involve complex family dynamics, requiring parents to manage their relationships with biological children and stepchildren. This can be challenging. Often, estate plans must be changed accordingly. Our Plano, Texas, law firm can accommodate this need. Taking the big picture into account, we make sure that all of our clients’ interests are protected, now and after the divorce is finalized.
Spousal Maintenance or Alimony in Colleyville
Many of our Colleyville clients seek our legal counsel regarding spousal maintenance (often called “alimony” or “spousal support”). They know that, in certain circumstances, Texas judges order payment to be made from the future income of one spouse for the support of the other spouse.
While the parties to a divorce may agree to any type of spousal support (often called “contractual maintenance”), the court is very limited in its ability to order support if the parties cannot reach an agreement.
Once spousal maintenance is court ordered, however, it is often as enforceable as child support, and failure to pay it may result in fines or incarceration. Further, spousal maintenance can have significant income tax implications. For these reasons, it is critical to consult with the attorneys at the law firm of Laurence A. DePlaza, P.C. prior to making any final decisions.
