Spousal Support

A “Means and Needs” test will be applied to establish if support is to be paid. The courts are generally referring to the Spousal Support Advisory Guidelines (SSAG) to determine the quantum (amount) and duration (length of time) support may be paid.

Spousal support is often the second most hotly contested issue (after custody/access). I will assist my client to negotiate and establish a fair resolution for the amount of support to be paid/received and the duration of which it will be paid/received.
