One party’s obligation to support a spouse or de facto partner may continue after the breakdown of a marriage or a de facto relationship. This is referred to as “spousal maintenance”.
Whether you believe you may be entitled to spousal maintenance, or are concerned about the likelihood of a claim being made against you, Tolcon Legal can advise you in relation to all spousal maintenance matters.
The concept of spousal maintenance in Family Law disputes is an important but often misunderstood one. The concept is that a party to a marriage (or de facto relationship) is liable to maintain the other to the extent that the party is reasonably able to do so. Where one party is unable to support themselves, it is relevant to ask whether the other party has the capacity to provide such support.
