Toronto Child Support Lawyers

In Ontario, the amount that a non-primary caregiver will be expected to pay in child support is calculated using the Child Support Guidelines. These guidelines take into consideration the payor parent's income, and the number of children eligible for support. It is essential to receive complete information regarding the noncustodial parent's income in order to determine a fair and accurate support order.

The process involved with calculating child support can be quite complex for people who are not familiar with it. At Nathens, Siegel LLP, our Toronto child support lawyers have extensive experience representing clients in all aspects of establishing and enforcing child support, as well as to the variation of orders.

Factors That Impact Child Support

The basic child support calculation is referred to as "table support." There can be a number of factors that can impact the table support figure. If the parents have a shared custody arrangement, for example, it can result in a reduction to the quantum of child support. In many cases, there may be special expenses for child care, medical care, education and extracurricular activities that the nonprimary caregiver is required to pay in addition to table support. These are frequently referred to as Section 7 expenses.
