Spousal maintenance
We understand that separation can be financially daunting for many clients. Clients are often concerned they may not have access to cash to meet day to day expenses for themselves, or that the income supporting the household will be insufficient to support two separate households.

Our family lawyers assist clients to secure financial support from their former partner following separation. We also advise clients with respect to any obligations they may have to pay spousal maintenance to their former partner.

Our family lawyers have extensive experience making applications for urgent spousal maintenance, lump sum spousal maintenance, interim spousal maintenance and ongoing spousal maintenance for a defined period after a property settlement.

We prepare Financial Agreements to finalise the rights parties may have with respect to spousal maintenance, so that their former spouse cannot claim spousal maintenance from them in the future.
