Contractual Alimony

Texas courts cannot order alimony, however the parties can agree to pay or receive contractual alimony. Contractual alimony is an agreement reached in the divorce decree in which one spouse agrees to pay the other a set amount for a certain duration of time. Contractual alimony can be a tax efficient method to divide property and business interests during the divorce process. If contractual alimony is part of your divorce, our goal is to help you negotiate a fair and reasonable arrangement.

Contractual alimony should not be confused with Spousal Maintenance payments. The link below is provided for those looking to understand spousal maintenance payments better.

"Making this difficult process as smooth and as successful as possible requires planning every detail before, during and after."

Barbara D. Nunneley
