It is important that you give serious consideration to claiming maintenance. If you do not claim maintenance for yourself at this stage, you will never be able to claim maintenance in future. This is only true between the spouses; children would be able to claim maintenance even after the divorce.
You may claim maintenance for a minor child or (in some cases) a major child – if the major child is not yet self-supportive. The basis of maintenance for children is the children’s needs and both parents’ means.
The arrangements made for maintenance are basically the same as you would have to make for a normal claim for maintenance in the maintenance court, and is therefore not repeated here.
