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.

💉⚖️Case Law: Covid-19 vaccine 💉⚖️

In the case of Tarkowski v. Lemieux, 2020 ONCJ 280 the parties were in Court regarding the issue of custody of their six-year-old daughter. One of the issues were pertaining to vaccinations. The Court noted that the mother had an erratic and unreliable approach to the issue of vaccinating, and had unproven beliefs. In the end, the court granted sole custody (final decision making) to the mother but gave the father specific decision-making authority over the vaccination decision. In this case, the court expressly included the future decision on whether to administer any available COVID-19 vaccine as part of the father’s mandate.
