Spousal support can be one of the most contentious issues in a separation. Who is entitled to spousal support, in what quantum and for how long, are issues many spouses find difficult to grasp and understand upon a breakdown of the relationship.

Entitlement can either arise from the circumstances of and roles adopted during a marriage or from a common-law relationship. The determination of entitlement to spousal support is grounded in the circumstances of the relationship and its breakdown, and is therefore fact-specific. No two cases are exactly the same. It is for this reason that obtaining advice from a lawyer to assess whether you or your spouse are entitled is so important.
