Child Support Payments

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.

Because there are a number of factors that go into determining the proper child support arrangement, it is highly advisable to seek out a family lawyer to guide you through the process.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between joint custody and shared custody?

Joint custody occurs when the parents of the child share physical and legal custody of the child. Joint custody is also known as shared custody, which is a 50/50 split. When parents have joint custody over children, they make decisions jointly with respect to the care of the children.

Couples or spouses who have decided to separate must decide where their children will reside and how much time each parent will spend with the children. This time is called parenting time. The time that each parent spends with the children is called child access.

Joint custody can be agreed upon prior to going to court. Some couples operate without legal custody agreements, while others use mediation to agree upon custody. If the parties cannot agree on the terms of joint custody, a judge may need to rule on the terms of the joint custody.

How do child support payments work?

Child support payments are payments made from one party to the other in relation to the maintenance and upkeep of children following separation or divorce.

Each parent is responsible for the financial maintenance of the child and payments are based on gross income and financial circumstances. Child support is usually paid until the children turn 18 years of age. Child support payments can be extended in certain circumstances.

In many cases, child support payments are made by the parent who spends the least amount of time with the children.

Child support payments are not related to the gender of the parent nor are they related to legal custody. If one parent has legal custody of the children, it does not necessarily mean that they will receive child support. As there are a number of circumstances that affect child support payments, it is best practice to seek the advice of a family law lawyer. A family lawyer who specializes in child support matters will provide the best legal support for your legal needs. Tailor Law handles both simple and complex matters of child support.
