It is critical, during the legal dissolution of a relationship, that dependent children be carefully considered and fair and reasonable plans be made for their continued support – financial and otherwise. It is also important to ensure that in a relationship breakdown, a spouse who is unable to continue with their standard of living be provided with adequate financial support to get back on their feet and start a new life without their previous partner. While there are clear rules in B.C. with regard to child and spousal support, those rules depend upon fair and accurate reporting of income on both sides, as well as other conditions. Our Family Law team will work with you to ensure that spousal and child support is fair.
