special or extraordinary expenses

Special or extraordinary expenses are a type of child support that is paid in addition to the table amounts of monthly child support set out in the Child Support Guidelines. The table amounts cover expenses like clothes, food, and basic school supplies.

Special or extraordinary expenses cover things like daycare or university costs. These expenses must be reasonable given the family's financial situation and necessary because they are in the child's best interests. Both parents usually share these expenses in proportion to their incomes.
