On the topic of child support, it is interesting to note that all provinces but Quebec base the child support guidelines on only the payors income and not both parents income. In Quebec the calculations are much different. Mysupportcalculator.ca doesn't provide guideline tables as Quebec doesn't have guidelines like the rest of Canada.
What more the guidelines in all the provinces don't actually follow the divorce act which laid out the frame work of setting up guidelines. The divorce act states that any guidelines must ensure both parents have a financial responsibility to support their children. Once can argue that the guidelines people stomp around as being the right of the child are actually against the law as they are now. Whats more in Quebec the payments are much lower.
For instance I'm 50/50 parent going with the numbers right after trial in Ontario I was paying an offset of $439 dollars per month, if I were in Quebec that same payment would have been $72.
