About our child and spousal support services

The terms of the child support or spousal support can be discussed in the context of family mediation.

Child support

All parents have support obligations toward their children. It’s important to understand that the right to child support doesn’t depend on the wishes of the custodial parent. This is a right that belongs to the child, and the parent doesn’t have the option of waiving it without justification. Only the court can decide whether a waiver of child support payments is valid and in the best interest of the child.

In all child support cases, we act fast to take the appropriate steps to have your rights

Spousal support

The Divorce Act stipulates that the competent court can issue an order requiring one spouse to pay spousal support to the other spouse, or, in some cases, it may be outlined in a separation agreement. In addition, the Civil Code of Québec stipulates that spouses and partners joined in a civil union owe each other support when certain conditions are met.

If you are entitled to spousal support, we act fast to ensure
that you receive the amounts that are rightfully yours. The same goes for any adjustment to or cancellation of such support payments.
