What You MUST Know About Spousal Support in Ontario, Canada
Did you know…? That you are a spouse (whether you are legally married or you are in a common-law partnership).
You have a right to claim spousal support, also known as alimony, when divorcing or separating from your spouse in Canada. Usually spousal support is granted by a court if a spouse was dependent on the other spouse financially during the relationship or the spouse suffered some “detrimental economic circumstances” as a result of the relationship (i.e., stayed home to raise children, was in ill health, etc.).
