When a Couple Separates.

Support Payments to a Former Spouse

Ministère de la Justice

Following a legal separation, a divorce or the dissolution of a civil union, you may be required to pay support to your spouse. When ordering the payment of support and determining the amount, the judge takes account of the needs, resources and situation of each spouse.

In general, spousal support is considered to be a temporary measure.
