Maintenance Agreements

Family law solicitors dalkey

The parties can sometimes reach an agreement as to the amount of payment to be made by one spouse to another in relation to maintenance or as part of a more comprehensive separation agreement. s27 of the Family Law Act 1976 provides that any agreement that attempts to exclude or limit the operation of the Act is void, therefore spouses cannot contract out of their rights to go back to court to seek a variation of the agreement at some future point.
