Default Income calculations for sec 7

Quick question:

Does received child support payments and child tax benefits get calculated into salaries as part of the gross income for the purposes of calculating how much each person pays for sec 7 expenses?

So, a stay at home mom with 5 kids getting lots of CS but almost no SS would effectively pay 0% of the section 7 expenses?

No, dad would pay 140% of his income to mom.

Unfortunately, they have exempted those payments from income calculations to avoid the upsetting of the moms.

However, you do not have to pay S7 expenses you do not agree to unless a judge orders you to do so. Mom would have to take you to trial and win in order to get that, which could take her over a year to do. Further, for daycare, income tax benefits need to be factored in to reduce your payments.

You could however be entitled to child support and child tax benefits yourself if you can get your kids for at least 40% of the time throughout the year.

Stop saying this in forums! Even if OP had the kids 40%, they would need to have it recognized by the court to have the cs change and if the ex is on odsp with no income the fight to have it changed is uphill. Shared custody with off set support isnt just a give if one party has the kid an extra few days a year.

If your ex has no income then you should be looking into having one imputed to them for section 7. The odsp and spousal more than likely will be considered income. Further, s7 unless its post secondary or day care dont have to be agreed to and then you dont have to pay. And if the ex is getting daycare then they are working which means income.

Consider what the s7 expense is. Ex doesnt get free reign to enroll in everything. Plus there are subsidies and discounts for low income and then its the net cost of the expense. You can say no.
