The Child Support Guidelines are the rules used to calculate how much child support a parent pays to help support their child financially.
The Guidelines include amounts of monthly child support that are based on the income of the parent who is paying support and the number of children they have to support. There is a separate table with amounts for each province. The table amounts cover expenses like clothes, food, and basic school supplies.
The Guidelines also include special or extraordinary expenses that may be paid in addition to the table amounts.
