Helping Clients Understand Spousal Support Guidelines

In Ontario, spousal support is determined based on guidelines that call for input of financial information and other factors such as the length of the marriage, number of children and more. Once these are entered into the guidelines, it can be determined how much you will pay (or be paid) per month and for how long.

Sometimes it is necessary to deviate from the guidelines. This is where our lawyers step in to provide guidance.

We have years of experience handling family law matters, including:

  • Divorce
  • Spousal support issues
  • Property division

Our Niagara Falls spousal support lawyers have in-depth knowledge of family law legislation in Ontario and have a proven track record in representing clients. We recognize when to expect challenges and know what strategies to use to make the divorce process as seamless as possible.
