Default Child support and Spousal support

Hello all,
When calculating child support do you add spousal support to the persons income in calculating child support?

for example:

One makes - 75000

One makes 40000 and spousal?

Child support is based on the payors gross income. Not after spousal, not the recipients income etc.

If you pay offset Im pretty sure its before spousal too.

No, spousal support is not considered income when calculating child support.

Assuming the parties exchanging support are the parents of the child(ren): No.

The order of operations is first child support, then spousal. Thus, the amount of spousal support being paid has already factored in child support being exchanged.
For a discussion of this pre-SSAG, see: http://canlii.ca/t/1nt9m

I am not familiar with any cases where a payor of child support is the recipient of spousal support from a different relationship. (ie, A pays B spousal support, B pays C child support). Tayken?

This is a great case example of a 16 year old kid who lives with dad with a mom paying CS to dad and receiving SS from dad. Similar to doing offset CS and one party receiving SS.
