What is the test for determining the appropriate division of assets between spousal support and quantification?

British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from K. v. K., 2005 BCSC 1009 (CanLII):

While it is established that the court should determine the appropriate division of property before moving onto considering spousal support entitlement and quantification, it is recognized that the two subjects are intertwined. In Moge v. Moge, 1992 CanLII 25 (SCC), [1992] 3 S.C.R. 813 at p. 849 it was stated that an equitable distribution of the financial benefits of the marriage may be achieved by spousal support, by a division of assets, or by a combination of the two.
