Spousal Maintenance Lawyers
Advice to assist you in making or defending a claim for spousal maintenance.
Spousal maintenance, also referred to as spousal support, can be confusing and leaves many people wondering if they or their spouse or de facto partner are eligible to make a claim.
Under the Family Law Act 1975, spousal maintenance is when one party pays the other to meet their financial requirements after the breakdown of the marriage or de facto relationship.
The payment doesn’t take into account the financial needs of any children of the relationship, that’s covered by child support and adult-child maintenance.
