This spousal support request letter can be used by a person who has been awarded spousal support or other support in a divorce or separation. This letter can be used to remind the party owing support of their obligations.

This document can be used to notify them of the court judgment or separation agreement and serve as proof that a reminder was made in writing. By putting a request for spousal support in writing, a person can document their request in case of future litigation or disputes.


How to use this document?

This document contains all the details needed to request spousal support or other support that is due, including:

  • The names and contact information of both parties;
  • The title and, if applicable, the case number of the court order requiring one of the parties to pay support;
  • The amount of support that is supposed to be paid and how often;
  • The amount of support that is due at the time the letter will be sent;
  • The letter also states the type of support that is to be paid.

Finally, the letter states a date by which the party required to pay must respond to the letter.

The most common form of support is spousal support, which is usually awarded for a specific period of time with an option to extend after that period.

Once completed, the person to whom the spousal support is owed must sign it and send it by registered mail to the other person (the support payor). This is to ensure that there is an official record of the date the request was sent and received.


Applicable Law

Federal law governs divorce, including obligations to pay spousal support or other forms of support. Some provincial or territorial family laws also have spousal support jurisdiction for non-married spouses.
