Spousal Support Quantum and Retroactive Adjustments

The SSAG use the incomes of each party, the respective obligations for child support, the age of the parties and the length of the marriage as the main considerations. There are, however, several other important considerations in the circumstances of the parties which take the issue of quantum outside the basic SSAG framework. Departure from a strict application of the SSAG may also be appropriate in circumstances of a payor whose income exceeds $350,000.00 per annum.
