Find out your rights and get what you deserve
Navigating the complexities of spousal maintenance and child support can be overwhelming during a divorce or separation. Our dedicated legal team specialises in providing comprehensive support in these matters, ensuring your rights are protected and the best interests of all parties involved are considered.
Spousal maintenance is a critical aspect of divorce proceedings, and it’s essential to understand that the court’s decision depends on various factors. We provide expert guidance on spousal maintenance, taking into account factors such as:
- Your Income and employability: The court considers your financial situation, including your income, employment status, and employability when determining spousal maintenance.
- Nominal maintenance: In some cases, the court may award nominal maintenance to preserve your rights for potential future adjustments. This can be crucial if your circumstances change, such as illness or job loss.
- Monthly maintenance: We assist in negotiating and securing monthly maintenance payments from your spouse, providing you with a stable income to support your needs.
- Lump-sum maintenance: If you prefer a clean break from financial support, we can help you pursue lump sum maintenance to ensure your financial independence.
- No maintenance: In certain situations, the court may rule that no spousal maintenance is necessary, particularly in short marriages or when your income is sufficient to cover your expenses.
Child support and maintenance
When children are involved, child support and maintenance are critical issues. Our services include:
- Calculating child expenses: We work with you to calculate the reasonable expenses required to raise your children, considering their well-being and future needs.
- Apportioning contributions: The court often determines each parent’s contribution proportionate to their income and expenses to ensure a fair distribution of child support responsibilities.
- Enforcing child support orders: If necessary, we can assist in enforcing child support orders to ensure your children receive the financial support they need.
