Child Support

When parents separate, the parent who does not have custody is usually required to help pay for the daily needs of the children. This money is called child support. It is not a punishment or reward for the behaviour of the parents. The goal of child support is to make sure that both parents contribute to the financial support of their children.

When child support is calculated, the deterioration of the relationship between parents is not a contributing factor. Child support is based on the best interests of the child. There are different regulations that will apply, depending on the relationship between the separating parties.
