Spousal Support

Finances are the most common concern when considering a separation or divorce from your spouse. Whether you are the higher or lower income earner, the subject of your finances is crucial, and often the indicator of your quality of life, going forward.

You or your spouse may be entitled to claim spousal support, regardless of whether you were married or in a common-law relationship.

When determining if spousal support should be paid, the first hurdle is to determine whether the spouse claiming support is legally entitled to spousal support. There are many factors that are consider. These include, but not limited to:

  • the length of the relationship;
  • ​the roles or duties performed by each spouse during cohabitation;
  • the education of the parties;
  • the parties’ standard of living during the relationship;
  • the age of the parties at separation;
  • the medical or health condition of the party claiming support;
  •  the needs and expenses of the parties; and
  • the parties’ respective incomes.

Whether you are the support recipient or payor, consulting an experienced family law lawyer about your potential rights, risks, and obligations regarding spousal support is the only way to ensure that your rights will be protected.

✨FaceTime Access ✨

With the progression of technology, virtual access has provided new means of maximizing contact between parents and their children.

Programs such as Skype, Zoom and Facetime have allowed their users to view each other while having a conversation.

When a virtual access schedule is implement, the details depends on each case such as length and time of the call and the child’s age. Virtual access is not a substitute to physical visits. A young child may not have the attention span to have meaningful virtual access as opposed to an older child who is use to technology and has the capacity. Virtual access can offer parties an additional method of exercising access during the week where physical access may be impossible or the distance between the children and parents is far. It also allows the children and parents to see each other as opposed to speaking on the telephone.

COVID-19 has caused unprecedented disruption to education. During this time, teachers have gone to incredible lengths to help their students keep learning.

Today is the start of in person school for many children. To every teacher, we have two words for you: Thank you!

All the children benefit from their teachers superpowers every year!

We hope all the teachers, teaching staff, and children have a great school year! ❤️

Back to school. Parents may both cheer and dread these three words. Some feel hopeful about new beginnings, friendships, and learning. Others are anxious about the new rules pertaining to in person school. Add news reports of increasing COVID cases and we can all easily slip into feelings of uncertainty, anxiety, and even fear. 

As much as we may want to wrap children in a protective bubble that prevents them from germs, learning how to navigate the real world is part of growing up to be strong. Talk with children about the the following points listed below which your children can do so they can stay safe and healthy.

▪️Hand Washing

▪️Physical Distancing

▪️Face Masks

Anticipate Some Anxiety and Nerves- Being around people again and having a more structured schedule may increase anxiety, especially for children worried about getting sick. Being able to anticipate them can make it easier to develop ways to help children cope with any anxieties that may arise. Practicing reframing negative thoughts as more positive ones can be helpful to do in advance.

Returning to in-person school is a big transition, and just as it took a while to figure out remote work and learning, it will take a while to acclimate to in-person school and the way of life surrounding it.
