Spousal support is often payable where a marriage or common law relationship has broken down and there is a discrepancy of incomes between the parties. The amount of spousal support and the duration of how long it has to be paid is affected by many factors, such as length of the relationship, the roles of the parties during the relationship, if either party has been significantly economically disadvantaged by the ending of the relationship, the resources of either party, and if there are any barriers to one party achieving economic independence.

Unlike child support, spousal support is set within a range of amounts and duration, according to the unique variables of your case. We will discuss with you what your expectations are and what options are available to you.
