Is My Spouse Entitled To Spousal Support Payments?
Entitlement to spousal support must be agreed upon or determined by a court. Entitlement may be based on need or on a compensatory basis.
The amount of spousal support takes into account the income of both spouses and the lifestyle of the parties.
The duration of support will depend on a number of factors including the length of the spousal relationship, the age and level of dependency of children and if and when the spouse will be able to become self-supporting.
Child support will always be calculated first before spousal support is considered.
