As a result of having been in a relationship it is possible that one party may be obligated to financially support their former partner; this is referred to in family law matters as an obligation to pay spousal maintenance.
Spousal maintenance is a distinct legal concept and is not related to child support or child maintenance.
Camatta Lempens’ family law practitioners are able to provide legal advice on the obligation of spousal maintenance, including but not limited to, whether this obligation may arise in your circumstances, the extent of the potential maintenance liability and how this can and should be resolved in your personal circumstances, in the context of your individual separation.
If you have a specific query regarding spousal maintenance we encourage you to make contact with one of our family law team to ensure you receive advice tailored to your needs and circumstances.
