Child Support

Child support refers to a child's right to be financially supported by the non-custodial parent. This financial support is generally paid on a monthly basis.

The amount of child support a payor parent is obligated to pay is often referred to as the ‘table amount’ as this number is derived from a table of calculations set out in the Federal Child Support Guidelines. This table amount is calculated based on the payor’s income and the number of children that they are entitled to support.

In addition to basic monthly child support or table amount, section 7 of the Federal Child Support Guidelines specifically addresses those “special or extraordinary expenses” which the basic monthly child support or table amount does not include. These "special expenses" include childcare expenses, extracurricular activities, orthodontics, and medical and dental care costs not covered by OHIP or the parents’ health benefits, and post-secondary expenses. These expenses are shared  in proportion to the parties’ incomes after deducting the child's own contribution, if any.

Whether you are the recipient or payor parent, being uninformed of your legal rights when making such informal agreements can result in receiving less than you are entitled to or paying more than you are obligated to pay.

✨FaceTime Access ✨

With the progression of technology, virtual access has provided new means of maximizing contact between parents and their children.

Programs such as Skype, Zoom and Facetime have allowed their users to view each other while having a conversation.

When a virtual access schedule is implement, the details depends on each case such as length and time of the call and the child’s age. Virtual access is not a substitute to physical visits. A young child may not have the attention span to have meaningful virtual access as opposed to an older child who is use to technology and has the capacity. Virtual access can offer parties an additional method of exercising access during the week where physical access may be impossible or the distance between the children and parents is far. It also allows the children and parents to see each other as opposed to speaking on the telephone.
