LawFact of the Day: Family Law

Here is your daily LawFact from Wise Law for Wednesday May 24, 2017. Today we are talking about Family Law.

The Spousal Support Advisory Guidelines (SSAG) assist Ontario Courts in determining the amount of spousal support payable by a spouse. Unlike the child support guidelines, the SSAG’s are not binding upon the Courts.

Ontario’s Courts, however, are required to consider the SSAG’s and to provide reasons for any decision that does not follow them.
