Spousal Maintenance

What is spousal maintenance?

Spousal maintenance is financial support paid by a party to a marriage to their husband or wife (or former husband or wife) in circumstances where they are unable to adequately support themselves. 

Similarly, de facto maintenance is financial support paid by a party to a de facto relationship that has broken down to their former de facto partner in circumstances where they are unable to adequately support themselves.

The Court can only make a de facto maintenance order if your de facto relationship meets certain jurisdictional requirements.
