The amount of child support payable by a non-custodial parent is strictly governed by the Child Support Guidelines. The Guideline tables establish basic child support obligations and are based solely on the payor’s income, number of children, and province of residence.
In addition to the basic child support payable under the Guidelines, additional amounts may be payable to cover special and extraordinary expenses incurred for a child’s daycare, medical care, education and extra-curricular activities like hockey and ballet. These additional expenses are shared by the parents in proportion to their respective incomes.
