Spousal Support Lawyer

Spousal Support Claims

Since the law views spousal relationships as financial relationships, when a marriage or cohabitation has ended, the person with more income or assets may have to pay support to the other spouse.

 


Two-Step Analysis

The law requires a two-step analysis in considering any spousal support claim. The first question asked is whether or not the claiming spouse is in fact entitled to spousal support. Not all spouses are entitled to spousal support. Once entitlement is established, the amount of support payable, and the duration of time for which support will be paid, must be determined.

Whether you seek to receive spousal support, or to ensure that you are paying a fair amount of spousal support, we will ensure that the issue is fairly negotiated, or if necessary litigated in court to obtain favourable results within the provisions of the law.
