When it’s awarded there is a time frame of three years that it can be awarded and there are certain caps of income depending on the monied spouses income that it will be paid. Most of the time in Navarro County what I find is instead of a cash money award the courts usually will do an unequal division of the community estate or when ordering an asset be sold or ordering that money be paid offset what the spouse’s support could be. That’s usually more typical of what we run into or what we experience here in Navarro County.
