Episode 001 - Does adultery affect spousal support?

Canadians are governed by a no fault system for divorce that does not focus on punishing someone who had an affair or other misconduct that has no economic impact. This approach saves parties thousands of dollars and wasted energy for divorcing couples. In rare circumstances, adultery can be relevant to a claim for spousal support if a spouse proves they are unable to work or achieve self sufficiency as a consequence being devastated by the affair.
