“My husband is obliged to pay me spousal maintenance so I can stay at home with our children.”
Fact
  Fact
Under the Matrimonial Causes Act 1925, there is the right to claim spousal maintenance. This is in addition to any maintenance payable for any children. However, it is not an automatic claim. It will only become payable if the party can show there is a genuine need for financial provision and can show that the former spouse can pay it.
