You marriage’s financial interdependence may not necessarily end with signing the divorce papers.

If one spouse has been financially dependent upon the other, Canada’s laws entitle the financially dependent spouse to ongoing spousal support in the wake of a divorce – especially if one spouse has suffered an economic detriment as a result of the relationship.

SPOUSAL SUPPORTIt’s the way that the law ensures that a spouse need not remain in an unhappy matrimonial situation because he or she couldn’t survive without the relationship’s other spouse.

Whether you believe you are entitled to support or the party paying, Mandeep S. Saggi and his Saggi Law Firm team will be advocates for your rights, be they to receiving adequate support so that you can leave a failing marriage and start over without becoming financially destitute in the process, or to protection from requests for excessive support.

As with child support, spousal support payments are determined by examining the circumstances under which the couple lived while married and accounting for both parties’ respective individual assets, individual net worth and income. These negotiations can become complicated, intricate balancing acts that often include one or both sides taking strategic aims at each other’s shortcomings, each believing that the other is “to blame” for the marriage’s failure.

Don’t play the game. Contact Mandeep S. Saggi, and let him champion your fair, equitable treatment.
