Child Support Archives

Child support issues any parent could face

After divorce or separation, Canadian laws require both parents to continue to provide for a child financially. Children are entitled to this money, and it can be critical to their well-being. Child support ensures a child receives things like a safe home, clothes, school supplies and other expenses required to raise a child.

CAN CHILD SUPPORT ARREARS BE CANCELLED?

Back in 1997 I wrote an article for this web site where I addressed the question: Can child support arrears be cancelled?"  I have now updated that article.  It is interesting that the 1996 Ontario Court of Appeal case that I cited back then, is still referred to in the more recent cases.  If changing child support is of interest to you, then click here for quick transport to the now revised and updated page at my web site.

PITFALLS OF SIMPLY REGISTERING SEPARATION AGREEMENTS

I don't like Separation Agreements. Many would surely disagree. In my view, Separation Agreements are not always that easy to enforce. It is much better to have a court order, especially if you seek to enforce a parenting plan. While the provincial government has a government agency mandated to enforce support orders, no similar agency exists with respect to enforcing parenting provisions. So, I don't like Separation Agreements.
