Alimony, or spousal maintenance, is a unique arrangement in Texas whereby the higher earning spouse provides, at least temporarily, for the needs of the other via financial support. 

In the state of Texas, only “Contractual Alimony” exists – when the spouses agree on an amount and length of time one person will pay their ex spouse. Just like any contract, as long as the terms do not violate public policy of the State, the parties involved set the terms.
