Unlike financial child support the court retains the power to adjudicate on whether a Spousal Maintenance Order should or should not be made as well as the level and duration of any Order, whether to cover the short term or long term income needs of an ex-spouse. A reasonable disparity of income and earning potential is a key factor in these type of Orders which are periodical in nature and are therefore capable of upward or downward variation.
With complicated financial matters often taking a long time to sort, you’ll want to act as quickly as possible to ensure an interim maintenance sum is agreed as swiftly as possible. The team at Slee Blackwell is committed to providing our clients with clear and cost-effective advice from the outset and we’ll always strive to achieve the best possible solutions as quickly as possible.
