Spousal Support

There are many unanswered questions when a marriage breaks up and one major worry can be your financial wellbeing. Jag and his team are here to help you with the difficult legal decisions that come with a divorce, which includes securing your financial future. Spousal support, also called alimony, can be a confusing and murky area of the law. Basically, spousal support is money your ex-partner pays you each month until you are able to stand on your own two feet. It stands alone from other financial support like child support and has its own section in the Canadian Divorce Act. If there is a large discrepancy between your income and your ex partner’s income, you may be entitled to spousal support. Alimony decisions are made on a case by case basis and judge’s will need to consider several factors including:

  • Financial need of both partners;
  • How long you were married;
  • The role each partner played during the marriage;
  • Care of the children;
  • Self-sufficiency of each partner
