Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: Okay thank you! So there is entillment to child support. Would you know percentage to be paid? In terms of paying support to the dad, what amount? Can you please provide an example of section 7 expenses? Not sure about spousal support. Was there a time frame to acquire spousal support? Is there anything to collect from an ex after divorce? Thank you

Legal Ease, Expert

Hello! My name is Debra (formerly known as Legal Ease). Thank you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.

The basic monthly amount is not a percentage but the amount is set by the Federal Child Support Guidelines.

You can use this calculator:

https://www.justice.gc.ca/eng/fl-df/child-enfant/2017/look-rech.asp

You each pay for the section 7 expenses in proportion to your incomes so if the father earns twice as much (just by way of example) then he would pay twice as much in terms of the various section 7 expenses.

Customer
I'm not sure what happened but no other account. I read the entire reply from you last night but today only a portion was there. No big deal.
Thank you calculator link and section 7 expenses clarification. Would a cellphone be considered an extraordinary expense?
In receiving continued child support for the bound, what amount is legally obligated to be paid to the father? Thank you

A cell phone for a child living at home is a luxury and therefore not a section 7 expense unless both parents agree.

Is there a typo? I don't know what you mean for the bound.

Customer
Wow I feel like a fool. I should carefully read. I reread your initial reply. You said since the boy lives with his Dad over 60% of the time the mother is NOT entitled to child support from the dad. But the boy must be supported by both. The calculator determines alot.
What if the boy decides to move back with the mom and split time again? Is there child support from the dad? Same payment as the original 50/50 arrangement?

Legal Ease, Expert

If one parent has the child at least 60% of the time then the other parent pays full support based on the guidelines and the number is ***** out in that calculator.

If there is a 50/50 arrangement you work out what each parent would pay if the other parent had the child over 60% of the time and the parent with the higher income pays the one with the lower income the difference.
