Spousal Support

Spousal Support is the term used to define payments made to an ex-spouse after a marriage has dissolved. Spousal Support payments may be temporary, indefinite, in the form of a lump sum or periodic. It is designed to help a lower-income spouse become economically self-sufficient. Spousal Support is also referred to as alimony. Canadian courts determine the amount and the payment type of spousal support based on several criteria, including length of marriage and/or cohabitation, responsibilities performed by each spouse during that time, who is repsonsible for the ongoing care of any children and any previous arrangements or orders made regarding support.
