Welcome 2012: changes to the child support tables

2012 is here and there are already changes you should know about in regard to calculating child support.

The Federal Child Support Guidelines have been amended as of December 31, 2011 for ongoing child support.  A summary of the changes and a useful question and answer can be found online.

The new tables can also be found on the Government of Canada’s website as well as a child support calculator.  In revisiting child support obligations and amounts it is also important to gather and exchange your 2011 income information as required by any agreemetns or court orders you have in place.
