Spousal maintenance is when one person provides ongoing financial support for their former spouse.
Essentially the extent of the support will depend upon a proven inadequacy on one spouses behalf to support themselves, and a proven capacity to pay support by the other spouse.
If you believe you may be entitled to spousal support, or need to oppose an application that you pay, please call us.
The judge who decides applications for spousal maintenance will look to your income, property, financial resources, debts, age state of health, ability to earn ( and whether this has been effected by the marriage), whether children live with you and what is a suitable standard of living.
If you wish to apply for spousal support, please contact us so we can help you prepare a financial statement.
