A Spousal Support Database Corporation search is not a legal opinion and should not be
relied upon as such. It is critical that a thorough review of the individual
cases be undertaken before these cases are relied upon.
Neither the Spousal Support Database Corporation nor John Syrtash nor
Martin Adler can guarantee that the search
results are completely accurate. In particular, the same parties cannot warrant
that all of the factors that may be important or conclusive in a judge's
consideration were adequately summarized in every case, although our researchers
attempt to do so. In many cases, the court does not recite many factors,
including some major indices, such as a recipient's income, age, or even payer's
income when determining quantum.
What does the Revised Spousal Support Database contain?
This database incorporates almost all available reported and unreported cases from
all provinces of Canada dealing with spousal support since the watershed decision of the
Supreme Court of Canada in Moge v. Moge of December 17, 1992. The database is updated on
a weekly basis. These decisions are obtained from Q.L. System's on-line legal research
facility, Quicklaw, and from the Reports of Family Law (RFL) reporting series published by
Carswell Thomson Professional Publishing, a division of Thomson Canada Limited.
