Maintenance Pending Suite Simon Walland Family Law

Following separation, if the breadwinner has left the home, or you have left, you might find that you have been cut off financially.  Going to court will usually take six months to a year.  How on earth can you afford to live for a year with no money.  If you find youself unable to pay the mortgage, put food on the table, buy petrol for the car, or whatever financial propblem you have, it is extremely unfair that your ex is still earning the same money yet not paying towards the bills they thay always covered before.

The court are aware of these situations and have a process called Maintenance Pending Suit which will, providing it is dealt with properly, order them to pay you a sum of money each month to keep you going.  It is intended to cover your costs, not to keep you in a luxurious lifestyle, but it will see you through the court process to a point where you get your fair share of the assets.

The process requires an application, a Statement and one, perhaps two hearings.  These should be dealt with quickly as it is seen as an emergency situation.
