However, in some circumstances spousal maintenance may be payable where one spouse is unable to meet his or her own needs and the other spouse has the capacity to assist. For example, a high income earner may have to pay spousal support to a former spouse who is unable to work because of a physical disability or where the former spouse is responsible for caring for young children.
Applications for spousal maintenance must be brought within one year after obtaining a divorce.
