Frequently Asked Questions
What is spousal support?
Spousal support is payments made from one spouse to another after a separation or divorce. Bhardwaj+CO can provide legal consultation and advice on spousal support with regard to your specific case.
What is partner support?
Partner support is payments made from one interdependent adult partner to another after a separation.
What is the purpose of spousal support or partner support?
Spousal support and partner support are meant to compensate a spouse or partner for caring for the children or for sacrificing their ability to earn income during the relationship and to help a spouse or partner that is financially disadvantaged after separation.
Who pays for spousal or partner support?
The higher income earner during the relationship usually pays spousal or partner support to help the other spouse or partner support themselves.
How are spousal or partner support payments calculated?
Legal professionals use the Spousal Support Advisory Guidelines to help calculate a fair payment.
What is an Emergency Protection Order and who can apply for one?
An Emergency Protection Order (EPO) restricts access to a home or individual. Any family member can apply for an EPO, including legally married/common law spouses and children. Contact Bhardwaj+Co for more information on EPOs or other family law services.
What is Spousal Support and who can apply?
Spousal support is financial aid that is given from one former partner to the other upon separation on a consistent basis. It is intended to help the lower earner support themself in the event of a separation or divorce and to compensate them for caring for the children or sacrificing their ability to earn a higher income during their relationship.
Any former partner can apply following a separation or divorce and legal professionals use the Spousal Support Advisory Guidelines to help calculate a fair payment. Contact Bhardwaj+Co to learn more about spousal support or partner support.
What is the difference between Child Custody and Access Time?
Child custody, or a parenting order, refers to the parent’s schedule of caring for their child(ren) and whether it is split 50/50, one parent has full custody, or another variation is taking place. If one parent has the child(ren) on a more daily basis, it does not mean that they have full or sole custody- both of you will be legally responsible for joint decision-making on the bigger things such as medical treatments, schooling and religion.
Access time refers to the non-primary caretaker that has defined access to the child(ren) on certain days- for example, Friday evenings to Sunday evenings every other week. Each case is different and your Bhardwaj+Co lawyer will explain your options based on your situation. Contact us today to learn what your options are.
What is a separation agreement and when is it needed?
A separation agreement helps both parties negotiate and settle their issues upon separation or divorce. It is used when children, pets, or big purchases are involved in a common-law relationship or marriage. This approach avoids long-winded court litigation. If you and your partner agree on the terms, one of our lawyers can draw up the legally binding contract. Contact our Edmonton Bhardwaj+Co lawyers to learn about what we can do for you.
When should I consult a family lawyer for child support issues?
You should consider consulting a family lawyer for child support issues, including establishing child support, modifying an existing child support agreement, enforcing a child support agreement, and resolving child support disputes between parents.
Bhardwaj+Co.’s expert team of family lawyers can provide personalized guidance and help you navigate a child support dispute.
