Are you not sure if you will get spousal support?

Have you been cut off from the bank accounts?

Do you no longer have access to the credit cards?

Are you worried about how you are going to pay the bills?

For those people who do not have sufficient income to meet their own needs, spousal maintenance payments may be critical for your daily living.

Spouse maintenance is a form of financial support of one spouse by the other spouse.  It is usually paid by agreement between two people following marriage breakdown or can be ordered by the Court if agreement cannot be reached.

Spousal maintenance usually takes the form of periodic monetary payments from one spouse to the other, lump sum cash payments, or payment of expenses for a spouse’s daily living costs such as mortgage installments, payments of rates, utilities, health care costs, and other household expenses.

It is important that you act quickly to protect your rights. If you want to know about your eligibility or your liability to pay spousal maintenance, contact Claire Naidu & Co on 0410 557 276 or email
