Child support is the right of the child. Parents have a financial responsibility to support their children.
Child support depends on the children’s living arrangements. If the child lives primarily with one parent, the other parent is required to pay child support.
In Ontario, child support is determined under the Ontario Child Support Guidelines. If a Divorce is claimed then Child support is covered by the Federal Child Support Guidelines.
Even though we have standard guideline tables, determining child support is not straightforward.
How an Experienced Southwest Ontario Child Support Lawyer Can Help
In child support claims, accurately determining the income of the payor is critical for both the recipient and the payor. When the payor is self-employed or controls a corporation in which he or she shelters income, calculating his or her true income can be extremely challenging. It is important to hire a lawyer with experience dealing with complex child support claims. There is often considerable value at stake when Child support is to be paid over 10 to 20 years.
Child support may also be increased by special and extraordinary expenses such as Daycare expenses or out of pocket Health expenses.
Child support may also be affected by custody and access arrangements.
