Abstract

The spousal support advisory guidelines have now become part of the standard toolkit of lawyers, mediators and judges across the country. The “final version” of the guidelines was released last July, after extensive feedback and some revisions to the 2005 draft proposal. But “myths” or “misses” have developed around the guidelines, frequently found in the case law — and I offer some tips that can help deal with specific cases.
