Family Law Report - 9 Issues of Family Separation
Issue 4: Spousal Maintenance...
In addition to both parents having an obligation to support children, couples who separate may also have an ongoing obligation to financially support one another. This is referred to as Spousal Maintenance.
If you have separated and your ex-partner has left you high and dry financially by transferring joint savings from accounts, closing bank accounts, cancelling credit cards etc, we can help. We can assist you in securing financial support from your ex-partner and if necessary, we can apply to the Court for Urgent Orders.
If your ex-partner has been unreasonable and an application to the Court is required, then the Court may also order that the other party pay the legal costs that you incur in applying to the Court.
