Before a divorce is finalized, all income to the marriage relationship is community property, so it is relatively easy to have the Court order interim spousal support, depending on the circumstances of the parties and what the Court considers necessary and equitable. For the Court to award alimony after a divorce is finalized is considerably more difficult and the circumstances must meet certain statutory requirements in the Texas Family Code.
