Child Support Administrative Recalculation Service

The new Child Support Administrative Recalculation Service offers an administrative process for parties seeking to change the amount of child support they currently pay or receive.

The optional and free service will help parties keep child support levels inline with their income without the costs associated with court review.

Not all child support court orders are eligible for this service. Parties are encouraged to review the available online resources or contact the Family Law Information Centre (FLIC) for more information.
