Spousal Support Lawyers


Spousal Support Lawyers

Our experienced spousal support lawyers represent clients in Calgary, Edmonton, Regina, Surrey, Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Winnipeg, and throughout Canada.

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.

If you are seeking spousal support, one of Merchant Law Group LLP’s experienced spousal support lawyers can assist you in maximizing the amount of spousal support to which you are entitled. If your spouse or former spouse is seeking spousal support from you, our spousal support lawyers can defend your rights to ensure that you do not pay any excess or unwarranted spousal support.
