Child support and the child’s residency are usually interconnected, with the parent who has custody of the child receiving money from the other parent.
The right of the child to support is unconditional. You can’t opt out of it in a separation or cohabitation agreement, just as you can’t opt out of spousal support.
By ensuring your child is taken care of financially, you can make the separation process easier on everyone involved.
It helps if you understand the process you need to go through to confirm who needs to pay what and when.
What are the child support laws in Alberta & BC and how do you calculate payments?
How can you update your child support arrangements if circumstances change?
