After a separation, a spouse remains responsible to support the members of his or her family with support payments to the best of his or her ability. Support payments are necessary because of the financial dependence of children and spouses on the breadwinners in the family. Child support is calculated first. Entitlement to spousal support is then considered. If entitlement to spousal support is established, the amount and duration is then determined.
