Do I have to pay spousal support in a divorce in Ontario?

Return to Video FAQs


In Ontario a higher income spouse may have to pay special support to a lower income spouse in the event of marriage breakdown. There are certain factors to consider when determining whether you may have to pay spousal support or receive spousal support. Some factors may be the length of marriage, the ability of the payer to make payments on this spousal support, and the difference in income between the spouses.

If you believe that you may be entitled to receive spousal support, or if you were wondering if you have to pay spousal support, you should contact a family lawyer to assist you in those options.
