Hi there, I''m new here! Does anybody know whether spouse maintenance is compulsory and enforceable by law? I am going through a divorce, we have only agreed on child maintenance so far. I am unable to work due to disability, my son and I live alone in rented accommodation so this is quite important. Please help.
Depending on the needs of one party and the ability of the other to pay the courts may grant orders for maintenance. A solicitor with knowledge of the law and experience of the local courts is in the best position to advise where you stand and if this is an option in your particular circumstances.
