undue hardship

Undue hardship means a payor parent doesn't have enough money to pay the child support they have to pay according to the Child Support Guidelines.

It can also mean that the parent receiving child support is finding it very hard to support the child with the amount they get according to the Child Support Guidelines.

Undue hardship is difficult to prove. If a parent can prove undue hardship, the court can order an amount that is more or less than what the payor would have usually paid according to the Child Support Guidelines.
