Spousal maintenance

Spousal Maintenace: Our Experienced Geelong Solicitors Can Support You

The Family Law Act 1975 states that a party to a marriage or de facto relationship may have an obligation to continue financially supporting an ex-partner, even if the relationship has ended. Such payments are referred to as spousal or de facto maintenance.

A person’s eligibility for maintenance depends on their need for financial assistance and the other party’s capacity to provide assistance. In order to determine whether a maintenance payment should be made, how much should be paid and the duration of a payment, the court will look at several factors.

Consult with our knowledgeable Geelong solicitors today to receive comprehensive advice and representation in spousal maintenance matters. We understand the complexities involved and will work diligently to protect your rights and secure the financial support you deserve.
