Spousal Maintenance

If you have been financially dependent on your partner during your de facto relationship or marriage, you may find yourself with limited financial means upon separation.

If you find yourself in this situation, you might have an entitlement to spousal maintenance from your partner (or to your partner). A spousal maintenance claim requires an assessment of your needs, your ability to meet your own needs and your partner’s ability to contribute to his and your needs. 

There is a limit of 12 months from the time a divorce order takes effect for you to apply for spousal maintenance.   After that time, if you want to apply for spousal maintenance, you would need to seek the leave of the court to do so.

Contact our solicitors if you have any queries about spousal maintenance.  Our experienced Family Lawyer can discuss your options and put your mind at ease.

Contact Davoren Associates in Surfers Paradise with your query today.
