When a marriage ends the two spouses are not always on an equal financial footing. One party may need support in order to achieve financial stability. Texas law provides for spousal support (also known as alimony) in certain circumstances. At the Law Office of Lauren Cain, in Frisco, our alimony attorney guides people through the process and is a determined advocate for our clients in alimony matters. Spousal support is a complex aspect of divorce. Having a skilled and knowledgeable attorney can make a difference.
