Child support is calculated using the Federal Child Support Guidelines and gross parental income. In sole custody situations, support is calculated using the paying parent's income only, and this calculator looks up the child support table amount for the paying parent's guideline income. The results will be the same as Canada's official child support table look-up tool. However, in shared and split custody situations, net support is calculated based on offsetting payments that take into consideration the income of each parent. The official look up calculator does not perform these additional calculations.
For example, in shared parenting where each parent has the children at least 40% of the time (also referred to as shared custody) the calculator offsets the notional child support payable by each parent based on their respective guideline incomes.
Where each child resides primarily with a different parent (i.e. split custody) the calculator assesses child support payable by each parent and the difference is the child support payable.
