Alberta, Canada


The following excerpt is from Rosario v. Rosario, 1989 CanLII 3327 (AB QB):

He states further on the same page: “the remarriage of a divorced spouse entitled to court-ordered support from a former spouse does not automatically justify the variation or discharge of a subsisting order for spousal or child support, but such remarriage is a relevant circumstance to be considered on any application for variation or discharge: see Caron v. Caron, 1987 CanLII 59 (SCC), [1987] 1 S.C.R. 892 …”
