Spousal Maintenance

If one party can show the court that they have a need for ongoing financial support and that their spouse has the capacity to contribute to those expenses, then they may have a claim for spousal maintenance.

Sometimes that claim will only be until property matters have been resolved, though in some circumstances, spousal maintenance orders can be ongoing for a number of years.

To advise whether you or your spouse is entitled to spousal maintenance we would require details regarding both parties’ weekly expenses and current income.
