There may be many reasons couples find themselves in trouble relationship-wise. It might be that there has been a history of bad treatment or abuse. Family law in Alberta helps couples to end their relationships or marriages, but when one partner is an bully, breaking up can be even harder to do. Agreeing on a separation agreement when one person is displaying bullying behaviour might have its own set of challenges.
An immigrant will be having his citizenship revoked for a marriage faux pas. British Columbia and other Canadian provinces and territories do not forgive violations of family law or criminal law lightly. Even so, the federal government rarely revokes citizenship once granted, but it is revoking the citizenship of a Chinese man it says secured his citizenship through a false marriage nine years ago. The government claims the man was in an alleged marriage of convenience to obtain Canadian citizenship.
The date a couple formally separates plays a major part in the divorce process. Determining that date under family law in Alberta can be confusing and may lead to complications.

Spousal support can be one of the most contentious issues when it comes to a couple separating or divorcing. British Columbia family law helps residents to figure out support payment amounts, who should be paying whom, when support should be paid and other issues associated with spousal support such as time limits to apply. The province has spousal support advisory guidelines to help residents figure out payment amounts and outlines the issues that could affect those payments.
When separated or divorced parents are having trouble with parenting plans that are in place, they have some recourse in the form of parenting coordination.

It’s possible your social media posts could impact your divorce proceedings. Specifically, social media can weigh heavily into discussions about finances, support payments and parenting abilities.
