Making Dollars and Sense Out of Spousal Maintenance

While a primary objective of the property settlement proceedings is to achieve finality for the parties, one area where finality can be considerably delayed is spousal maintenance.  In the recent Federal Circuit Court decision in Blevins and Blevins, the wife was permitted to make spousal maintenance application over 20 years after the final property settlement orders were made.  In this program, Melanie Wilson, from Clancy & Triado, in Melbourne, reviews the implications of that decision, and other significant spousal maintenance cases.
