Spousal Maintenance

There is a legal obligation, in some circumstances, to ensure that your partner is financially supported. Spousal maintenance provides financial support for partners that cannot support themselves and applies  to both marriages and to de facto relationships.

The most common situation where spousal maintenance will be payable is where one partner is unable to support themselves for whatever reason – be it medical, financial, mental, or due to the demands of raising children. It can be paid in periodic sums or as a single lump sum. Applications for urgent maintenance may also be sought, as well as back-payments.

Our family lawyers can help you to obtain spousal maintenance, to change the level of maintenance, and to achieve a fair and more balanced payment.
