Being a parent to a child entitles parents an obligation to support that child, whether you are married to the child’s other parent or not.
- When parents separate or divorce, their children have a legal right to financial support. Although it is a trying time for the entire family, it is crucial to have an experienced lawyer on your side to determine the amount of child support you are entitled to.
- Some guidelines for child support are dictated by the federal government, while some fall under provincial or territorial law. The amount of child support is also dependent on the family’s financial situation.
