Factors considered in establishing child support

Establishing child support can be one of the most important tasks when a couple in Calgary decides to split or divorce. While the relationship between parents may end, the same cannot be said for that between the parent and child. Accordingly, each parent is expected to continue to do things they previously did, such as financially support the child. 

What is the Civil Marriage Act?

Each day people who reside throughout Alberta decide to get married. For a variety of reasons, those relationships do not always last and couples opt to end their marriages by filing for divorce. While in some situations this process will be straightforward, other times there will be complications. For example, it may be possible that after marrying in Alberta a couple moves to another jurisdiction that does not recognize the validity of the marriage. Without the recognition of a marriage, a divorce is impossible. Likewise, a form of marriage that may not be recognized in a foreign jurisdiction, e.g., a same-sex marriage, may be validated under the the federal Civil Marriage Act if the couple becomes resident in Canada.

The thought of hiring a lawyer is scary to many in Alberta. For a variety of reasons—including the expense—residents of the province may be tempted to resolve a legal matter on their own, without the benefit of legal counsel. While people facing a variety of legal matters might opt for this approach, it may be particularly popular where family law matters--such as divorce--are concerned.
