When parties separate, it often has an immediate financial impact. In some cases, one party may have an immediate or pressing need to receive spousal maintenance from the other.
In determining whether or not a party has a claim for spousal maintenance, it is necessary to consider:
- Whether a party has a right to spousal maintenance as a result of being unable to adequately support himself or herself;
- The needs of the proposed recipient of spousal maintenance; and
- The capacity of the proposed payer to contribute spousal maintenance after meeting his or her reasonable living expenses.
