Spousal support in Quebec

Understanding your rights and obligations

Spousal support is an essential concept in the Quebec legal landscape, designed to maintain the financial balance between spouses following separation or divorce. The judicial stages – interim, interlocutory and final – play a crucial role in determining these pensions. At Family Law, we’re committed to guiding you through every step of the process, ensuring that your rights are protected and respected.

Interim stage

At this preliminary stage, the court assesses the immediate needs of the parties. This is often a temporary solution that takes into account the current resources and needs of the spouses to ensure that neither is disadvantaged during the legal proceedings.

Interlocutory stage

In this phase, the court may revise or confirm the initial decision, taking into account additional evidence, changes in circumstances and other relevant factors.

Final judgment

Here, the court makes a final decision on the pension, after thoroughly analyzing the financial situation of the spouses, their previous standard of living, their age, their health, their contribution to the family's well-being, and other essential elements.


Quebec provincial legislation is very specific about the criteria and guidelines for determining spousal support. It’s a complex area that requires a thorough understanding of the legal nuances and long-term implications.
