The payment of child support is triggered by the parents’ separation.
Child Support is a mandatory payment from one parent to the other parent or a set off amount of money paid to between the parents, if you have a shared parenting arrangement.
Child Support is the right of the child and Courts are very strict about enforcing these payments.
The Federal Child Support Guideline determines the amount of child support payable.
There are ways to reduce or deviate from the Federal Child Support Guideline amounts due to shared parenting or successfully argued undue hardship claims.
Be sure you are getting the correct amount of child support being the table amount (either section 3 or section 9) AND section 7 expenses. If you are not receiving both, then you are not receiving enough child support.
When in doubt, book a consultation, and I would be happy to answer your questions. Please note that there is a fee for this consultation.
