Top court maps out approach to support changes

Anne-France Goldwater of Montreal’s Goldwater, Dube, counsel for the Women’s Legal Education and Action Fund (LEAF) and the DisAbled Women’s Network Canada (DAWN-RAFH) who intervened in L.M.P. v. L.S., said the groups were “thrilled” with the Supreme Court’s judgment.

“What [they] wanted to establish is that, where there is long-term support provided for in an agreement between a husband and a wife, a husband should not be able to come back with impunity and merely say: ‘We have been divorced this amount of time — cut the support,’ ” Goldwater said.
