As we recently discussed (here), it is only under specific circumstances that a Texas court may award spousal support to a party at the end of a Texas divorce case. If those circumstances do not exist, then the court is unable to make that award. Today, we will look at a related issue: a Texas court’s ability to award Temporary Spousal Support.

When a divorce seems likely, we often are asked about whether one spouse might be required to make support payments for the other spouse. Although, some folks call such support payments “alimony,” Texas does not have an actual alimony system. Instead, Texas law provides for “Spousal Support.” While all of the differences between alimony and spousal support are beyond the scope of this piece, suffice it to say that spousal support is a considerably more limited support system than is traditional alimony.
