How old are you now?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.
Technically you can make the application for spouse maintenance - BUT your chances of success are very minimal given the length of the time since the separation and the fact that the reason you have had to stop working was nothing to do with your ex and his behaviour.If you can accept that there is only a remote chance of success then toy can arrange to attend a Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting - a mandatory prerequisite before making a Court Application.I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further detailsClare
