Child support payments are monthly transfers of funds from one separated parent to the other for the purposes of the child(ren)’s care and maintenance. In a case of parents who share physical custody of their children 50/50, both parents are responsible for contributing financially to their child’s wellbeing, and their contribution amounts are based on their gross incomes and financial circumstances. In a sole custody situation, the support payments would flow from the parent without custody to the parent with custody.
Although child support is generally paid until the child is 18 years old, it can be extended in certain cases if, for example, it may be extended if the child is unable to live independently, or is enrolled in full-time post-secondary education.
Child support payments are not based on the genders of the parents, nor are they based on which parent has legal or physical custody of the child. They are based on the financial circumstances of each parent. These payments are calculated in the same way whether a child’s parents were married, living together in common law, or not in a relationship at all. Either way, children have a right to be supported financially.
