Aliment for spouses and civil partners

If you are married or in a civil partnership each party owes an obligation of aliment to the other up until the point of divorce or dissolution of the civil partnership.  In order to determine whether or not aliment should be paid, it is necessary to look to the respective needs and resources of the parties, their earning capacities and the general circumstances of the case.

Aliment for spouses and civil partners is treated separately to child maintenance and child aliment.

Please contact a member of the team on 0131 226 6541 or 0141 332 5666 for advice on aliment.
