To quickly, fairly and cost efficiently secure a fair child support judgement in Ontario, we recommend using a Family Mediation Services instead of a Family Law Lawyer. A knowledgeable family law mediator will greatly reduce frustration, costs and conflict while keeping the child as the central focus. Whereas a divorce lawyer will add to stress for ex-partners and/or the children involved as they wheel through the slow court system using your money.
Child support is determined based on a formula that carries a calculation across Canada. It is recommended to review child support claims annually.
How is child support calculated? The child support calculation is based on the government's Child Support Guidelines. These Guidelines say that child support is usually made up of two amounts, a monthly amount called the table amount and additional expenses called special or extraordinary expenses.
Special or extraordinary expenses may include:
The Child Support Table is different for each province, however if the payor parent lives outside of Canada and the other parent in Ontario, the Ontario Table applies. The child support calculation can get complicated depending on financial status of each party and other circumstances.
