Child Support and Special Expenses

Raising and caring for children is a privilege and rewarding and can be challenging and expensive.

Our family lawyers are well equipped to claim and defend against child support and special expense - tuition, books, daycare, extra curricular activities - claims by using a personalized approach to determine your rights and entitlements.

Child support and special expenses are generally determined by a table set out in the Federal Child Support Guidelines. The payor’s income from employment or self-employment is used to determine the amount of child support payable. Sometimes, if a payor’s income cannot be determined for whatever reason, it may be necessary to have income imputed to the payor to obtain child support.

Much paperwork and legal process is involved in family law disputes. As such, it is beneficial to obtain advice from a family lawyer to assist in securing child support for your children to protect your family and their future.
