Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: My daughter just turned 18 in july and is enrolled in full time post secondary (university) in alberta and still living at home with me full time. Her dad is extremely wealthy and has stopped child support. He has said he has RESP's and a trust and that support payments are done.
JA: How old is your daughter?
Customer: 18
JA: Is there an agreement for payment of child support?
Customer: there is until 18 and then it says reviewable at that time by either party
JA: Anything else you want the Lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: I don't think so

Hello, thank you for the question.

Is it a contract in place, or a court order?

Customer
Court order

Can you attach a pic or scan of the part that deals with child support? If not, that's ok. But I'd prefer to see it.

His income is imputes at 1 million but that's low with what his actual earnings are but I'm fine with that.

I agreed to less than chart calculation which was over $8000/month

She is with me full time and he doesn't see her at his choice. Calls only when he needs something from her, like tuition cost etc

How is the child support money flowing to you? Through provincial enforcement?

Customer
He has been mailing a cheque each month...used to drop it off on the 1st of each month

Then you need to remind him that this court order DOES NOT say that the support terminates in July 2020. It becomes reviewable. Which means that either party can bring it back to court for re-evaluation if they wish, and there's no presumption that it will continue or stop; entitlement and quantum will need to be re-established.

If he doesn't continue paying, you're free to send this to MEP for enforcement. Tell him that. The order to pay hasn't changed. He is still ordered to pay until the order changes.

If the child is enrolled and will attend full time post secondary education then child support will still flow. In fact, you can ask for it to increase. The RESP is for the post secondary costs, not for child support.

You should provide him with details of the child's full time enrolment to prove entitlement.

Does that answer you?

If I've answered you may I please have a service rating? Ratings are how I get credit from the site for helping its customers. I'd appreciate it.
