Thanks so much for yur answer, much appreciated. Please can tell me how I could prepare for the maintenance hearing? I understand that the maintennce department will be leading the case (much like a state prosecutor) but what can I do?
Good afternoon,

Compile a list of your expenses and income and have a folder ready with the proof thereof. Maintenance is calculated on the need for maintenance (how much) and the ability to pay (the income of your ex). You can't do anything about your ex's income, but you need to proof how much maintenance is needed, and that is why you must prepare that folder with proof of your expenses.
