please prove about her income and her lavish spending, so that the husband can get suitable relief.

Interim maintenance cannot be avoided,till the divorce is disposed off.Final award of maintenance to the wife will depend on the evidences filed by either side.

Interim maintenance has to be paid if she has not enough means to meet domestic expenses.
