  1. Hello

    My partner pays his ex wife maintenance for herself and his child if he draws his pension early but continues working does he still have to pay her? The court order states she gets half of his pension

    Regards
    Michelle

    1. Dear Michelle, thank you for your comment. It will depend on the specific terms of the Order as to whether spousal maintenance continues. I recommend that your partner seeks advice from a Resolution lawyer on this particular issue. They will need to review the Order before they could advise in more detail.
