Maintenance is an important part of all matrimonial proceedings.
An application for maintenance is filed by a spouse who does not have the means in which to support themselves and, thus, requires maintenance.
Maintenance is divided in to two parts, specifically:
INTERIM MAINTENANCE: Interim maintenance is provided while court proceedings are ongoing. The effect of an interim maintenance order is that the party receiving maintenance is not disadvantaged because of their inability to support his or herself while the proceedings are ongoing. The quantum and frequency of interim maintenance varies, but the status of the parties prior to the proceeding is strongly considered, as well as the income and means of the party against whom maintenance is claimed. The goal on interim maintenance is to maintain a level playing field for the parties.
PERMANENT MAINTENANCE: Permanent maintenance is decided at the conclusion of matrimonial proceedings. The Court will make an order or orders for maintenance on a permanent basis. These orders will depend on the facts and circumstances of the case itself and how the Court ultimately finds.
