Providing A Clear Guide To Spousal Support
In Ontario, a relationship is considered a financial partnership. When a marriage or common-law relationship ends, one spouse may be required to provide the other with spousal support payments depending on several determining factors.
The province’s Suggested Spousal Support Guidelines provide a general framework in an advisory context but it is important to note that when it comes to determining spousal support, there are a range of points to consider including:
- The duration of the marriage or relationship
- Each spouse’s income
- The health and age of both spouses
- The financial state of both spouses
- Each spouse’s ability to support themselves
- The standard of living throughout the duration of the partnership
