Canada’s Divorce Act provides for retroactive spousal support with direction as to calculating duration and quantum of support from the Spousal Support Advisory Guidelines .
When spouses, common law or married, separate it commonly provokes a financial or economic crisis. Combined incomes paying for household, family, and personal expenses are now stretched to providing for two households, on separate incomes. A claim for child support will often be followed with a note to consider spousal support on a list to discuss with the family law lawyer.
