A divorce or separation is never a pleasant situation for you and your family, but it is important to seek the right legal counsel and representation.

Spousal Support and Adult Interdependent Relationship Support
Under Canadian law, one spouse can be ordered to pay spousal support to the other. Our experienced divorce Lawyers can help you negotiate spousal support payments. The Court will be involved only when both parties cannot come to an agreement. Some of the factors that determine how much spousal support is awarded:
Status of each spouse in terms of income and assets
Age and health
Standard of living during marriage
Duration of the marriage
Child support is not included in spousal support payments. You cannot evade spousal support payments by declaring bankruptcy.
