Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
You cannot ask two separate questions on the same post. Can I go ahead and answer the question relating to support?
Is this about child support or spousal support?
If it is about spousal support would you say that his income will be significantly higher so this would be a material change of circumstance?
If this is about spousal support what does the order say about variations of reviews and requirement to provide ongoing disclosure of income?
Did you just discover that his income is higher now?
The court is certainly not going to allow him to keep the $500 a month. That is outrageous.
He has an obligation to provide annual disclosure. You can bring an application to vary the support and for an order that he no longer keep the $500 a month. You can seek to have the order made retroactive.
Does that make sense?
I don't know what you mean when you say you are not further ahead. You had a question that was answered and now you said you figured that was the answer but are you actually saying that getting an answer from a senior family lawyer isn't assisting you? Please clarify.
What you can do to find a lawyer is one of the following things.You can contact the BC Branch of the Canadian Bar Association and use their Lawyer Referral Service. You will be given the name of a lawyer and can consult with the lawyer and the first half hour will be $25.The number is:(###) ###-####or 1.***-***-****.Or you can check on a site called lexpert.

Does that help more?
