I'll keep this in mind, but I don't think that such an article is possible. I doubt that any judge is blatantly applying the law differently to men and to women. Any differences in outcomes are likely due to much more subtle factors.

Also, I'm not sure that what you state is true across the board. Certainly in cases where the man is disabled, or in cases where the parties are in a true shared custody situation, at least in Ottawa I have found judges to award support to men the same as to women.

clusterone is on a distinguished road

As a support payer of both compensatory and non-compensatory support, I am looking out for the general consensus (and specific examples) on when that compensatory factor has been fully met.

I know all cases generally refer to the "standard of living" test, but that is still pretty vague. I really like to see specifics. More specifically, how often is the test met when the mid-point (or high or low point?) of SSAG duration is reached?
