In Canada, there are guidelines that govern child support. They attempt to set fair standards, reduce conflict, improve efficiency, and treat parents in similar circumstances consistently. Under these guidelines, child support can be based on a support payor’s yearly income and the number of children involved. Children can be entitled to support for special or extraordinary expenses. Child support can also be requested of people that have consistently acted like parents to children that are not biologically their own. In this area, financial disclosure is very important. Contact David H. Nuri, Barrister & Solicitor to help understand your child support and disclosure obligations.
