WHAT IS ALIMONY OR SPOUSAL SUPPORT IN VANCOUVER?

Our Vancouver Spousal Support Lawyers are well aware that alimony or spousal support are payments one person pays to the other after separation. These spousal support payments are usually calculated based on the difference between the couple’s net incomes. Important factors that determine the amount and duration of spousal support in Vancouver are: 1) the length of the marriage or common law relationship 2) the disparity of the couple’s incomes 3) whether the couple have children and 4) the role each person played during the marriage or common law relationship.
