Maintenance agreements are either worked out by a divorcing couple with the help of a lawyer, or decided on by the court. The agreement is part of the final divorce settlement, and is issued as a court order. A spousal support or maintenance order can be modified at a later point in time if there has been a significant change in circumstances, such as:

  • The dependent spouse remarries
  • Significant increases or decreases in income

In some situations, it may even be possible to terminate a support agreement, depending on the circumstances of the case.
