Spousal Support Lawyers

Long gone are the days when it was the perceived norm for the wife to be dependent upon her husband for support because she did not work outside the home. Instead, the modern approach is based on the spousal support advisory guidelines and on factors which vary from province to province, and which may include:
(a) the needs of each spouse;
(b) the length of time they lived together, and
(c) the work each spouse performed during the marriage.
In determining the amount of spousal support to be awarded, the following factors may also be considered:
(a) the age and health of the parties;
(b) the present or future earning capacity of the parties;
(c) the need of one party to incur education or training expenses; and
(d) the existence and duration of a pre-marital joint household or a pre-divorce separate household.
