  • Question about Child and Spousal Support

    Hi there,

    My cousin is in quite a difficult situation and we're seeking for some experienced help. My cousin and her soon-to-be ex-husband is going through a divorce at the moment and their 10yr old daughter is stuck in the middle of all that mess.

    They have not settled on anything yet, the man wants to sell the house and take the money with him, but as we all of us know, the spouse is entitled to half of what he has if it was accumulated during the marriage. But the thing is, the house is under his name and his brother's name. My cousin's mother-in-law (the dude's mother) bought them the house.

    Question 1: How much of the house is she legally entitled if it was sold?

    As of this moment, nothing has been settled and no legal documents have been signed regarding the divorce. The dude has now left the country on a way ticket back to Asia, leaving his 10yr daughter behind. He has stated "in writing" that he has agreed to pay child and spousal support for the next 5 years in the amount of say $1800 per month. But my cousin did not agree to the terms. She strongly believes that family law states the deadbeat father has to pay child support until the daughter turns 18yrs old.

    Question 2: Is there such a clause in family law that deadbeat is required to pay child support until the child reaches to the age of 18?

    Question 3: Is there anyway to retrieve the child and spousal support from the dude if he is in another country?

    Question 4: Since the dude left country, and IF there is no way to collect the child and spousal support, would the crown grant the mother and child a bigger portion of the money or all of the money if their house was sold.

    The dude is unemployed, but his family is pretty wealthy, he basically has financial support from his mother who resides in Asia. When the family was still together, the mother in asia would wire money to the father to support the family. He basically cheated on my cousin with another woman online via internet, and actually tore up the family and moving to indonesia to be with that woman.

    Can any of you please help us out?

    Much appreciated!

    Thanks!

    i forgot to mention, we and they reside in the province of ontario. that'll probably clear up a few questions since family law differs from province to province.

    thanks.

      Getting an Order

      If "dude" now resides fulltime in another province/state, than you'd have to file for an Interjurisdictional Order.

      If he's employed, they'll make him pay child support according to the Federal Child Support Guidelines in Ontario. Which could be less than what he'd originally offered, or more ... depending on his annual income.

        If the "Dude" is living in Quebec then you would use the federal Quebec tables. If the Dude is living in Alberta then use the Alberta Tables. The applicable tables to use is where the payer lives as each province respective tables factor in the payable income tax for that particular province.

        On the face of it, it appears your sister got a raw deal and as such should bring forth legal proceedings in the community of where the respective child in the heart of the matter lives.

              Maybe you should start your own thread to get the answers you are looking for

                Is it really necessary to resort to the name calling? Should we start referring to custodial parents (80% of whom are women) that routinely deny access to the other parent as deadbeats as well?

                  You are really a bitter man on here. May I suggest to you to seek some help. Apparently your wife left you and you did not get what you want so you are going to perpetrate your lousy attitude on others who simply wish to get at some truth. They are not interested in your bitterness. Neither was I when I asked my question but you I can deal with.
                  A father who does not pay support on time, for his child is a deadbeat. Access can be denied for a great number of reasons and one of them is abuse. I have never cried wolf and I won't as I have to much intelligence for that nonsense. But the nonsense you carry on with here tends to make me think you really need to get some help. I watch your comments and they all sum up to you being an angry man. Get over it and move on with your life. You are not helping anyone with your anger. If you want to help people and that is what I THOUGHT this Forum was for, we do not need these kinds of comments coming out. By the way...my son's father asked to see him back 3 months ago, I gave my phone number to his lawyer so he could call me and we could make arrangements...funny no phone call yet and he has not called us in over a year not has he seen his son. He lives 10 minutes away. What the heck do you call him? My son who is 10 says and I quote " My Dad is a real jerk" I wish I could hit him and tell him that he has really hurt me" My son asked if he could see his dad and I said of course he can any time he wants to. Now, Put that in your pipe and smoke it. You seem to be trying to run a monkey court here and I believe the other Moderators are doing a fine job, but you need to be removed as a Moderator.

                        Apparently not. We agreed to separate and I ended up with sole custody.

                        My ex hasn't paid CS since day one, is well into arrears and refuses to adjust the CS based on increases to her income. I have had to register with the FRO and take her back to court to enforce the order. She didn't show up to court last time. Any names that come to mind for her?

                        Any time he wants after you roadblock it by running it through the lawyers. Unable to reach a mature agreeement with your ex on your own?

                        I'm not a moderator.

                        I suggest that it is you whose screw is loose Deut. I'm not the only who feels that way.

                        Hey BTW, thanks for reminding me of this oldie YouTube - Spoons Romantic Traffic. Did you get your screen name from the chorus?

                          And a big hmmmmm

                          As a father we are equal parents and for some reason never treated as such. Ontario family courts only see us as a big fat dollar sign, we don't get our fair share. My 14 & 16 yr old boys have made their decision 2 yrs ago to be with me fulltime with no access to their birth mother as they call her. Would the courts allow me to get CS payments from her NO...would they allow me to stop SS to offset my expenses or monthly living cost NO.

                          Please refran from using that degrading and low blow label to fathers all over this country that have been stripped of their obligations and access to their children.
