Every child has the right to have a relationship with both parents. In most cases, it is in the child’s best interests to develop and support these relationships. In some very rare cases, it may be determined that it is in the best interests of the child to have no contact with a parent. In other cases, it is determined that a child should have access to a parent, but only under the close supervision of an independent, neutral, third party.
Justice Canada has amended the Federal Child Support Guidelines to update the child support tables. The Federal Child Support Guidelines are used when determining child support in relation to a Divorce Act matter.
