Family Law

Before getting divorced in Canada, parents are required to make reasonable arrangements for their children as mandated by the Divorce Act. This includes deciding on living arrangements and child support payments, typically paid by the father if the children reside with the mother. The Child Support Guidelines sets the amount of child support payments based on the number of children and income of the paying parent. Deviating from these guidelines requires a valid reason, or the court may refuse to grant the divorce. As such, the presence of children is a crucial factor to consider before pursuing a divorce
