In what circumstances will the court award spousal support for an employee who voluntarily quit his job?

British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Tamaki v. Dahlie, 2012 BCSC 1917 (CanLII):

As to the respondent, he voluntarily quit his job. The situation in my view is analogous to the decision in Skramrud v. Skramrud, 161 A.C.W.S. (3d) 924. There, the husband relied on medical evidence to support his early retirement stating it was not voluntary. None of the medical reports provided substance for this argument and the court concluded the husband was intentionally unemployed and imputed income to him at his former level of employment for both child support and spousal support.
