What is the test for a consent order to review spousal support?

British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Logan v. Logan, 2007 BCSC 904 (CanLII):

While the law is clear that a review as contemplated by the consent order is a hearing de novo and that no change of circumstances need be demonstrated, it is, with respect, not a complete de novo hearing. The court essentially looks at the circumstances of the parties and may again consider the three models of spousal support discussed in Bracklow v. Bracklow, 1999 CanLII 715 (SCC), [1999] 1 S.C.R. 420, [1999] 44 R.F.L. (4th) 1 (S.C.C.), keeping in mind the factors and objectives of spousal support set out in s. 15.2(4) and (6) of the Divorce Act.
