 Spousal Support:
     Sometimes when marital parties separate, because of illness, lack of education, or work experience, one spouse is not prepared to earn the money to stay afloat. While a divorce is pending, the Court has unlimited authority to award temporary spousal support. The Court will additionally consider the health and age of the parties, ability to work, responsibility for children, availability of funds, and the length of the marriage.
     When divorcing couples have been married for 10 years or more, Texas Courts have limited authority to order alimony for up to three years after a final divorce is granted. The Court considers the needs of the requesting spouse and the ability of the other spouse to pay.
     These after-divorce spousal payments are not limited by the three year statute when the parties enter into an agreement for contractual alimony.
