Default Spousal Support Claim Article

Quote:
excellent tip sheet by The Hon. Justice Stanley Scherr for presenting spousal support claims. It was previously published in Matrimonial Affairs, the newsletter of the Ontario Bar Association family law section
Quote:
It is helpful to set out what you will be asking for at the very beginning of your material. For example: Mary and Bob have been married for 22 years. They separated on January 1, 2008. Mary will be seeking indefinite spousal support in the sum of $2,000 per month, which is the upper range of the Spousal Support Advisory Guidelines. Mary asks that the support be ordered retroactive to the date of separation.
Quote:
Set out the basic information for the support analysis at the beginning of your material. This would include the parties’ ages, the length of marriage, particulars about the children, childcare obligations, levels of education and work history.

You must establish entitlement to spousal support before applying the SSAG. Structure your evidence about entitlement in accordance with the spousal support entitlement category you are claiming (contractual, compensatory and non-compensatory). Use them as headings.
Be sure that the evidence covers the relevant spousal support purposes and considerations set out in the legislation, whether the claim is under the Divorce Act or the Family Law Act
Quote:
Set out the reasons, with supporting evidence, about why you want spousal support to be ordered at either the upper or lower end of the SSAG range, or in the appropriate case, outside of the SSAG ranges
Quote:
If you are making a retroactive claim, address the factors set out in Bremer v. Bremer [2005] Canlii 4191 (OCA):

Default B.C. Court Awards “Trophy Husband” $157,000 Spousal Support

This story make me think of the member by the username "Trapped"

Quote:
Justice Wong of the B.C. Supreme Court recently released a decision in Walker v. Brown which awarded a self-represented man $157,000 lump sum in spousal support.
Quote:
Although the couple had never been married they had a domestic relationship which spanned 14 years. He was 50 years old, 21 years younger than she was, when he moved into her home in 1997. She was a former world class figure skating champion who had amassed a sizeable fortune, in particular from her late husband’s estate.
Quote:
They first met when he was working part-time at a Federal polling station, and she was a volunteer scrutineer for the Conservative Party of Canada. Within days she took him to lunch and started purchasing him gifts, including a $10,000 Rolex watch.

Default Spousal gone mad

Another good example of why you should settle down with somebody who has no intentions of working and earning a close to, or equal income.

Quote:
The Ontario court’s ruling late last year in McCain v. McCain achieved considerable notoriety for several reasons: first, the husband happened to be Michael McCain, son of Wallace McCain (the founder of the well-known McCain’s food brand in Canada). Secondly, it set a Canadian family law record for the highest monthly spousal support amount ever awarded.
I can only imagine what kind of self sufficiency lesson 'Christine' is going to pass on to her kids????

Well rather Mr McCain than me

Probably the same self-sufficiency lesson they get from observing their father live off of $500 million in inherited wealth.

Providing the father didn't work I agree. I mean, does Belinda Stronach not work considering her father is loaded?
