Maintenance Orders

Have your financial circumstances recently changed? Are you no longer able to fulfil your obligations under the terms of the Spousal Maintenance Order (SMO)?

Variation and Termination of Maintenance claims

You may wish to vary the SMO if your income has reduced as a result of either re-marrying, losing your job, retiring etc. In some instances, an obstacle in your life may mean that you need to terminate the SMO altogether.

In the appropriate circumstances you can seek for the Court to either vary or terminate your SMO. The starting point would be to review both party’s finances, weighing up their needs with your ability to pay. We will guide you through the process from the negotiating table until either the variation or termination is approved by the Court.
