Spousal maintenance is generally the most fought-over part of a divorce settlement. Should one spouse pay the other spousal maintenance? And if this is the case, how much maintenance should be paid every month? Should the maintenance end after a few years or should it continue for life? How much money does one spouse earn and how much are the maintenance needs of the other spouse (usually the wife, but not necessarily)?
We have over ten years of experience advising both husbands and wives about maintenance claims. We are able to negotiate settlement agreements out of Court, or else pursue or respond to claims in Court. We can also make applications for interim maintenance (including an element of legal fees) or applications to vary existing maintenance orders if circumstances change, for example the payer loses his/her employment.
Speak to us also should you have any questions about child maintenance or whether you are entitled to receive maintenance if you are not married to your partner (cohabitation).
