Spousal Support - Legal

The decision to end a marriage or partnership can be a very difficult one, particularly if there are children involved. When a couple decides to separate, often times financial support for either an ex-spouse or children needs to be addressed, and there is not a one-size-fits-all solution for all couples. Spousal support refers to the amount of money that one spouse or common-law partner pays to the other, following a separation or divorce. A judge will decide if, and how much, spousal support is to be paid, using federal guidelines set out in the Divorce Act, which is a Canada-wide ruling. If you would like more information on spousal support, the guidelines around it, how to calculate and determine spousal support amounts, or if you are in need of a mediator or lawyer to help you settle on spousal support payment amounts and terms, we have the resources you need.
