I have been living separately from my husband for several months now. I wanted ‘time out’ before deciding whether to opt for divorce. I have decided to file for maintenance anyway – can I get it from when we separated a few months ago ?By: דיאנה שאלתיאל•Published on: 16 May, 2022
No ! A wife is not entitled to get maintenance relating to a period before she files her plea. She is only entitled to get maintenance from the time she files for it. Sometimes when a couple come to an agreement the parties will agree on an earlier date from when maintenance is to be paid.
