11 years separated. Can he ask for support now?
Posted in Location, Ontario, Ottawa, Separation by Questions on December 17, 2014
I separated from my ex 11 years ago. We never went through lawyers. He made less than I at the time of separation. We each had our child 50% of the time and each provided equally. Now he is on social assistance, I pay for everything for our child, help him (when he runs out of money for food, etc) and I’m wondering if I owe him anything officially. Can he ask for support if we’ve had a 50-50 “custody” arrangement and he could provide for himself then? Can he ask for spousal support for himself (we were common law for 7 years) or official support for our child for when he has our son ?
