Supreme Court Hearings - R.P. v. R.C.


R.P. v. R.C. - April 20, 2011
Case #33698

This appeal arises from a Quebec Court of Appeal’s judgement that annulled R.P.’s alimony from her ex-husband.

The respondent argues that his financial circumstances have changed and that his ex-wife is in a better financial position than he is. The appellant is in her 80s, while the respondent is in his 70s. They had married in 1958, had two children and were divorced in 1984. The respondent remarried in 1985 and had a child with his new wife, who is in her 50s.
