Spousal support or alimony is a big issue in divorce. To ensure that you don't end up paying too much or getting too little spousal support during your divorce process, it is important to work with a lawyer with experience in these types of cases. We will work with you to ensure your spousal agreement is fair for everyone.
In Saskatchewan, the court determines whether or not either party is eligible for support. Both spouses may request spousal support, but generally, only one will receive it. Spousal support is designed to help each spouse be self-sufficient without large inequities in either spouse's standard of living. The court considers the financial position of each spouse, the length of the relationship and the role each spouse played. If you're considering requesting spousal support from your soon-to-be ex-spouse, it's important to speak with an experienced family law lawyer who can guide you through this process and make sure you receive a fair deal.
