Spousal maintenance and Reallocation funds
Why must i pay spousal maintenance if she is in another relationship and when she is working for her own money, also she wants more funds for reallocation?
Current legal position is that spousal maintenance is not “ bread for life “. The idea is to assist her to be self supporting. If circumstances have changed since the court order for spousal maintenance ( on divorce) you can bring an application at the maintenance court at the Magistrates Court near you for a variation (change) of the order, citing those reasons. Also have a look at the conditions of the current order.

Don’t pay her what she is not entitled to under the current order, before you apply for a variation. For example: Relocation funds. Demands cannot be made on you for any reason.
