Episode 201 - Spousal Support

Everyone understands the necessity and importance of parents supporting their children. But when it comes to paying support to an ex-spouse, many people bitterly object, especially if they've already had to divide their property. Why does the law provide for spousal support? In what situations will it be ordered? How is the amount of support calculated? How long should a person be expected to support an ex-partner? Is there any obligation for the dependent ex-spouse to support him/herself? This compelling and controversial topic is explored in depth by Justice Brownstone a fellow judge, Justice Stanley Sherr.
