    Hi

    Can anyone help? I want to apply for spousal maintenance – how do I do this? How do I know how much I should be getting.

    Victim of DA and no £££ so I am representing myself in the divorce.

     

    Thanks

    You fill in a form E, which you can download. You need to work out what you need to live. Go through your bank statements. Make a spreadsheet with, mortgage, food, bills, haircuts, etc etc etc ANYTHING you spend money on, and work out what you spend and are likely to spend. It takes ages and you need to keep going back to it when you remember something. They work out what income you can achieve yourself and would subtract that.
