  • Episode 006 - Spousal Re-marriage. Spousal Support?

    Contrary to popular belief, the remarriage or re-partnering of the supported spouse rarely, immediately, reduces the amount nor automatically cancels your spousal support. But it does have an important impact on reducing the amount and length of spousal support. A new relationship can lead to almost immediate support cancellation in short-to-medium length first marriages, involving younger support receiving spouses who have suffered limited career damage or foregone opportunities...

  • Episode 005 - Will the Court Allow a Change of School?

    When a separated parent wants a child to change schools, three factors must be considered. Firstly, is the transfer in the best interests of the child? A judge will want to see that you as the parent have put your child first and are basing this decision on the needs and best interests of your the child. Secondly, have discussed the school transfer with the other parent? Even if you have sole custody a judge will want to see that you discussed it with the other parent particularly if there is extra cost.

  • Episode 004 - Put a Separation Agreement in Writing?

    Family agreements are viable and binding options for preventing or resolving family law disputes. Homemade agreements made without the benefit of legal advice won't carry much weight with a judge so using lawyers helps protect both spouses. Fair agreements will be upheld but outrageous bargains may be ignored or varied by courts. Child custody agreements may be set aside by the court if the agreement is not in the best interests of the child.

  • Episode 003 - Can We Afford to Get Divorced? Costs of Divorce

    One of the most stressful things about family separation is that there is often not enough money to go around. Separated couples must realize that the past arrangements that worked when the couple was together often can't continue after separation because those arrangements are now financially unrealistic. Paying for a spouse to retrain and re-educate immediately, often pays off for both spouses and their children even after paying for daycare.

    Paying for a spouse to retrain and re-educate immediately, often pays off for both spouses and their children even after paying for daycare. Sharing child custody shares the burden of raising children and can also result in some big tax savings for separated spouses.
