Gibraltar Spouses and Cohabitees
Amber Law can help guide you towards assessing a fair and reasonable sum (if) payable towards spousal/ co-habitee maintenance in Gibraltar. In the event that you or your spouse lives in Spain, our Spanish Legal Consultant is also available to offer advice.
Calculating Spousal Maintenance
It is a spouse’s/ cohabitee's legal obligation to provide sufficient financial or other support for their partner on separation/ divorce. The focus is on what his or her needs are. Every relationship is different. Amber Law’s task is to create the best ‘package’ for your needs.
Some people suffer a disability on the labour market, or have specific mental or physical health problems which may require extra expenses over and above their basic needs, such as specialist medical care, dietary requirements, opticians fees and so on. This is why every case is treated by Amber Law as unique.
Amber Law will ask you to provide a list of all your income and expenditure and also that of your former partner, if known, and (if necessary) your new partner’s if cohabiting. Some partners decide to work together in an open manner and provide the full picture of their financial situation to each other. This enables them to move forward with trust and cooperation. If this is not possible, Amber Law will assist in obtaining the financial disclosure for you, so that maintenance is secured at the earliest possible time and as a last resort, through an application to Court.
