What is spousal maintenance?
Spousal maintenance is an agreement between former partners where one person will provide continuing financial support to the other after the breakdown of their marriage or de facto relationship. Spousal maintenance can also be referred to as “alimony”, which is the terminology used in the United States.
Spousal maintenance is different to child support or adult child maintenance, which is specifically financial support for children.
