Spousal maintenance (sometimes known as ‘alimony’) is payments from one person to the other – de facto or married – when a relationship ends and when one partner needs money that the other partner has the capacity to pay. Whether and how much spousal maintenance is payable is very case specific and we need to closely review your overall financial circumstances in order to assess whether spousal maintenance is likely and if so, in what amount and for what timeframe. Make an appointment to come in for an assessment with Partners in Family Law.
Partners in Family Law can help you:
- Determine if spousal maintenance is relevant in your circumstances;
- Work out an approximate amount of spousal maintenance that is appropriate in your circumstances;
- Decide whether to make a Binding Financial Agreement with your partner to protect you from having to pay or seek spousal maintenance if you and your partner separate.
