Spousal Maintenance Central Coast
Am I Eligible For Spousal Maintenance?
A spouse may be eligible to spousal maintenance in some instances. To be entitled to spousal maintenance you must prove that:
If you are going through or have recently gone through a divorce, you must apply for spousal maintenance within 12 months of the Divorce Order becoming absolute, otherwise you must seek the permission of the Court to begin your case.
However, if you were in a de facto relationship, spousal maintenance must be applied for within two years of separation (if you are late regarding application, the same rules as divorcees apply to you).
