Is spousal maintenance ever really final?

In 2019, the Federal Circuit Court of Australia made an order in the matter of Blevins & Blevins [2019] FCCA 1923 that leave was not necessary to make an Application for spousal maintenance, and considered it was appropriate to hear an Application for the Respondent to pay spousal maintenance.
