Man owing child support arrested for violation of family law

There are many ways people may attempt to evade child support or spousal support obligations. These family law violations can have serious consequences for both the violating payer and the dependants involved. Recently, one man made news in Calgary, Alberta when he was arrested after fleeing from a $560,000 child support bill.

Intention in spousal support agreements important in Alberta law

When Mr. Bumble in Dickens' "Oliver Twist" complained that the law is a bachelor, he could not have been more wrong. The seriousness with which Alberta family law views and treats formal marriage equals the solemn intentions of any couple undertaking vows. When spouses decide to dissolve a legal union, their intentions regarding spousal support and other vital issues come under the same sober legal scrutiny.

Coping emotionally during and after divorce

Breaking up with a long-time partner is never easy. Divorce can bring with it numerous challenges, from legal to financial battles to emotional and psychological struggles. People in Alberta who are going through this life event can follow the advice of experts to get through some of the more difficult times and create new, healthy patterns.

Unhelpful view of marriage needlessly complicates Alberta divorce

Sometimes, what research studies leave out is more revealing than what is being studied. There is nothing wrong with promoting the married state as a source of happiness. Increasing rates of divorce, however, in Alberta as elsewhere, suggest that marketing the married lifestyle over and above other lifestyle choices is unhelpful, and even pernicious.
