- One spouse (the applicant) being unable to adequately meet his or her own reasonable needs
- The other spouse (the respondent) having the capacity to pay
In both cases, proof must be presented as evidence, and if matters go to court, then it could take much longer to resolve. Many clients prefer to settle out of court, but situations may arise where one party strongly disagrees with the other, or perhaps refuses to pay.
In these instances, we can provide the guidance and support you need, and will represent you in court until the matter reaches its conclusion.
