As part of our advice to clients with respect to their financial settlement, we often discuss with them the issue of spousal maintenance. Spousal maintenance is different from child support. It is a duty of one spouse to maintain another. It is important when considering the terms of your financial settlement that spousal maintenance is also properly considered and given regard to in the formalisation of your arrangements. Here at Wilsons we ensure that you are fully informed as to where you sit with spousal maintenance, whether there be an obligation to pay spousal maintenance or indeed if you are seeking spousal maintenance.
