Understanding Your Spousal Support Rights
Spousal support payments are not automatic, they are determined based on the needs of the parties involved. At Richard A. Low & Company, our firm has provided the Lethbridge, Alberta community and surrounding cities with solid legal advice and support to protect their rights following the breakdown of a marriage or relationship.
Spousal Support Entitlements
Spousal support payments are utilized when there is an unfair advantage to one party after a separation. Factors include earning power, income sources and the lifestyle changes that would occur after the couple head their separate ways.
Our goal is to help you maintain as much stability as possible after your separation. With over 60 years of combined experience, our lawyers can help you pursue and enforce adequate support.
Spousal Support Obligations
If you are obligated to provide spousal support payments, the most common legal questions include:
- How much do I have to pay?
- How long do I have to make payments?
We aim to make sure you are only obligated to pay the necessary amount based on unfair advantage to the other party. We will also advise you on how to proceed with any necessary amendments, and determine a firm timeline for how long payments may continue.
