How is spousal support or alimony calculated in Texas?
Hi, I'm Tycha Kimbrough. If you're wondering how spousal support is calculated in Texas, it is based on the needs of the spouse who is seeking the spousal support. The court does have discretion when it comes to the exact amount of spousal support that will be granted. But the court will not allow spousal support to exceed 20% of the obligating spouse’s income.
