Spousal or Partner Support
Resolve Legal Group
Divorce, Divorce Lawyer, Support
There is no automatic entitlement to spousal/partner support when you get a divorce or separate from a Partner. An agreement can either be made between the parties or a Court can decide firstly, if there is entitlement to support and secondly, how much support you might receive and for how long you will receive it. There any many factors that must be addressed in order to establish entitlement to support and there are many objectives that affect the amount and duration of support. We can help you understand this very difficult area of law that has been established though legislative recognition and case law precedent. There are also Spousal Support Advisory Guidelines which have been introduced to help us determine amount and duration; these guidelines act as a reference point to assist individuals in determining a range of appropriate support, but they are not mandatory calculations under the law. We strongly recommend that you receive legal advice before you agree to pay or receive any amount of support.
