Spousal support or “alimony” is a common sticking point in divorces and relationship breakdowns amongst Canadian couples.
One of the parties may be entitled to spousal support to prevent financial hardship — and this can create lead to a major economic impact for both parties unless it is a reasonable arrangement.
Despite federal guidelines on who is entitled to what, disputes are common with this issue.
