My bf and his ex wife live in ontario, canada. He currently pay's 1500.00 in child support...a number made up by her

Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: My bf and his ex wife live in ontario, canada. He currently pay's 1500.00 in child support...a number made up by her lawyer. I thought based on income and a 50/50 shared custody with 2 children aged 10 & 8 and him having full time with eldest daughter who is age 12 it should be a lot less but his current lawyer is telling him it is not. Is this information he is getting accurate?
JA: What steps have your boyfriend and his ex-wife taken? Have they filed any papers in Canadian family court?
Customer: Just a separation agreement notarized by each lawyer
JA: Have they talked to a lawyer about this yet?
Customer: he has
JA: Anything else you want the Lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: will this cost me?

Please note that the experts don’t text so there may be a bit of a delay. If you don’t answer back for a while I may not be online when you do but I will never desert you and will check back often. As well, as I am working from home it is possible that I will be interrupted but I will always return back as soon as I can.

I am sorry to hear of this difficult situation.

Are you asking me how to calculate child support?

Customer
Thank you very much I look forward to speaking with you

my bf made 123,000 last year before taxes and his ex wife made 55,000. He currently has 50/50 custody with two children aged 10 & 8 and he has his oldest full time she doesn't even see her mom and he pays 1500.00
Customer
A month? I'm just asking if this number is *****?

I am going to compose the answer now.

Customer
Ok thank you

Debra, Expert

The way this works essentially is that you look at what your boyfriend have to pay to the mother for two children. Then you look at what the mother have to pay him for three children.

$1753 - 1,081.00 = $672

So he should be paying $672.

I have no idea where they got 1500 from.

Does that help?

Customer
It totally does...thank you very much for your help on this

You are very welcome.

Customer
if his schedule with his eldest went back to 50/50 could you tell me what he would potentially pay?

Debra, Expert

$2282 - $1081 =$1201

Customer
