In the event of a divorce, there are laws in place to protect a couple’s interests, children, and property sharing at the family level. When filing for child support during a separation in Ottawa, Ontario, family lawyers can effectively guide you through the process. 


Family lawyers have an understanding of federal and provincial family laws. They can offer advice on child support and spousal support guidelines. 


Federal Child Support Guidelines

With a lawyer at your side, you will have a better understanding of child support and their payment guidelines. These guidelines assist the couple and the courts in understanding the level of support owed.


One of the most important elements in any divorce is ensuring that there is standard and fair support for any children of the marriage. Financial support is determined through an accurate calculation of the child support after a determination of the payor parent’s guideline income.


The Spousal Support Advisory Guidelines in Ottawa

An Ottawa based lawyer can take you through existing guidelines on spousal support. Even after a divorce, you may be entitled to receive spousal support, or you may have an obligation to pay spousal support. In 2008, the Federal Department of Justice released advisory guidelines that assist parties and the court in assessing what quantum of support is appropriate.
