Every parent has an obligation to provide for the needs of a child for as long as a child is considered a child of the marriage under the Divorce Act or a child under the Family Law Act. The obligations of a parent to the child do not cease when the marriage or relationship turns sour and this includes providing financial assistance to the child.
The Federal Child Support Guidelines is the determining factor for the amount of child support that should be paid by the parents. There may be instances where the parties may depart from the amount provided for in the Guidelines.
It is important that you get a legal advice in order to determine the amount of child support that your children are entitled to. As a family law firm in Calgary, Borja Law will ensure that you and your child’s rights are protected.
