Hi everybody..just a quick enquiry - currently seperated, wife living in MH & i'am paying the same bills/mortgage as b4 the split. Married 9yrs+ but no children - We both work full-time but my salary per annum is approx 10k more than hers..can she claim spousal maintenance against me if so for how long would I be expected to continue paying her??
Your wife can apply alot depends on how much you both earn, the idea is that payment or payments are made to help her adjust to being single again.
If she earns enough to look after herself then it will probably not be granted.
If it is granted how much and how long depends on many factors it can be given for life.
You would need to post more details to get a more defined answer.
