Maintenance is spousal support.  Courts do not frequently award maintenance and a spouse seeking maintenance bears the burden to prove that he or she is entitled to maintenance.  A person seeking maintenance must be thoroughly prepared to present evidence in support of his or her request. Our divorce lawyers and family law attorneys at Brydon, Swearengen & England P.C. will take the time to fully explain the whether maintenance is an option, and if so, to prepare for presenting the evidence at trial.
