Is spousal support guaranteed after a divorce in Alberta?

Nothing changes a person's financial outlook quite as suddenly as a divorce. After possibly years of knowing exactly where the money is coming from, things can quickly change. Those men and women who find themselves in this position may have many questions. For example, some may be wondering if they will either pay or receive spousal support.

Spousal support hearing goes badly for man representing himself

The culture of "do-it-yourself" has permeated nearly every aspect of life in Alberta. While some tasks, such as minor home renovations or car repairs, are perfectly fine to tackle on one's own, some jobs are best left to professionals. A man in eastern Canada who represented himself at a child and spousal support hearing ended up with an unmanageable financial obligation, and regrets for his lack of courtroom skills.

Child custody doesn't have to be a struggle

For some parents, children become a divisive issue during and after divorcing, but that doesn't have to be the case. Child custody battles and arguments over support do not have to be the norm for divorced parents in Alberta. For proof, one need only look to a mother and father whose family photos are going viral.

Child custody battles can bring out the worst in parents

While parenting can sometimes bring out the very best in people, that can all go by the wayside upon entering a court of law. Civility and human decency are often forgotten in the struggle to come out on top in a family law matter. Child custody battles are among the most heated struggles seen in an Alberta courtroom. A perfect example comes from a case heard in another province.
