Interim maintenance is paid during divorce proceedings and is intended to provide financial support to a spouse until a full and final financial resolution can be reached.
Interim maintenance can be paid by either party, but is normally paid by the family’s highest earner. If an agreement cannot be reached, you must obtain an order from the court to secure interim spousal maintenance, and it is therefore advisable to seek advice from a qualified UK family law solicitor.

It is essential that the appropriate amount of interim maintenance is agreed or obtained in court, in order to ensure the welfare of both parties and that any children have their standard of living maintained.
