How does spousal maintenance work?
Can anyone advise me on how spousal maintenance works please

Top Answer
Solicitor (no longer in practice). Spousal maintenance is a payment that's paid by a husband or wife to their former spouse as part of their divorce. Usually, payments are made monthly. The order can last for either a defined period which is considered long enough to allow the other spouse to become financially independent or it can be open ended
