Child support and spousal support
Child support is legislated by both the federal and provincial government and is generally paid according to the income of the payor spouse and the number of children that he or she is obligated to support. There are a number of considerations that can impact the determination of support including where the children primarily reside and whether their residence is shared or split between the parents. Spousal support on the other hand is often determined with the assistance of the spousal support advisory guidelines which take into consideration various factors including the income of the parties, the length of the relationship, the number of children of the relationship, as well as the demonstrated need of the recipient to require financial assistance from the other spouse.

Parenting children following separation
Upon the breakdown of a relationship the best interests of the children are of primary concern to all affected parties. Parents must therefore establish parenting guidelines and principles so that each parent understands their respective role when it comes to parenting their children. The most common issue that parents are generally confronted with pertains to the decision making authority of the children including decisions related to the health of the parties children as well as the education and religion of their children. Often parents have shared decision making authority also known as joint custody. However, when parents cannot cooperate nor communicate effectively regarding their children it may be more reasonable for one parent to have sole decision making authority or sole custody so as to minimize any conflict between the parents.
