If you can't manage your spending habits then I would suggest cutting up and disposing of your credit cards.

Sounds like the two of you were mutually not honest in disclosing gifts from parents throughout your short marriage (receiving money from parents to pay off credit cards).

I'd learn from your mistakes and move on. You have probably "dodged a bullet" but the next time may not be so simple. Had you stayed with this person a few more years and she became totally disabled then you could be supporting her for a very long time.

You did not disclose how you and your STBX made the 100k - hope it was legal or you had fun doing it! Hopefully you and your ex paid back your parents???
STBX? Don't know what that is.

100k+ is my salaried full time job - all declared to the CRA.

Just out of curiosity, we separated a year ago. Multiple lawyers have told me that the other party proving that the separation agreement is null and void would be a stretch and it isn't as clear and cut as they say it is - which I agree.

Let's say, worst case scenario it is thrown out. Would the spousal support payment and equalization of asset be based on what I have now in the bank and make, or based on what I made when we separated and what I had in the bank account at that time (of separation?)

I assume the equalization payment I've already made is worth something?
