  • My support calculator

    Hi,

    Does anybody have knowledge of whether my support calculator software includes benefits and subsidies received for the s.7 expense when making calculations for who owes what?

    If it's the same as what lawyers use then yes it calculates assumed deductions. My husband's calculations from the lawyer included the post secondary tax credit deduction in the amount. But you may have to pay for the software online. The basic version shows it doesn't calculate children's expenses.

      The engine is the same, despite free version doesn’t display everything, like NDI %.
      If spousal support not a question, you can use MSC or the table amounts calculator provided by government, look it up on Canada.cat - numbers will be the same.
      if ex has a lawyer and you don’t, and they send you divorce mate reports, do verify it against MSC. In theory courts accept MSC, but if you see MSC is different from DM and you have a court coming, there are lawyers who will prepare you DM for just ove a $100 - it takes only a minute, and it isn’t worth a risk what if judge doesn’t believe MSC and only believes DM

        Thank you so much, by any chance can anyone tell what line I have to look at on the ex's NOA to get the total amount she received for childcare due to work.

          That would probably be a taxable benefit which would be on her t4. You will have to ask her for the full schedule of documents to see what she put in. Or just ask her for a copy of t4.

          Also, if she receives compensation for child care, she should be providing proof of that amount outside of her NOA as part of the expense calculation. It should be coming to you separately when she requests your share of the expense with the receipt for the cost.

            Thanks Rocksan,she is not agreeable to providing the information,and I know if there is a tax benefit associated with the expense (ie medical expenses, child's activity amount, child's art amount) it should be considered with the benefit.

            I need the Information to calculate my proportionate share for the past 3 years summer camp.Any suggestions on the resistance.

              I am pretty sure the activity tax credit was scrapped four years ago by the Ford government. It may even be five years since it was put in place.

              The only things she could claim on her taxes are daycare and medical expenses. Which means your share of summer activities art classes and the like are full cost.

                Also, medical expenses are a % of her income and that normally amounts to $1500 or more. So if she spent more than $1500 on medical expenses the year before, she would get a credit but not much.

                    If you know she gets a subsidy for daycare then you tell her you are not calculating your portion without all documentation on it.

                    As for camps, no receipt, no pay.

                        And make sure to inspect those receipts. My ex got family membership for some of activities so that she can also enjoy it (with actually adult classes being at even a different time, and then used the receipt and demanded me paying it. I politely reminded her that I am only paying my part from the individual membership for child only, which caused her lawyer to recollect some vocabulary when she wanted to become a sailor and not a lawyer, but in the end, I only paid for child, and not for my ex. Do not hesitate calling service provider to verify the receipt.

                          Yep. And also activities you didn't agree to! My husband's agreement said a specific activity that existed when they split. The year after his oldest didn't want to do it so the ex got her a gym membership. She tried to pass that off as the activity they agreed to and it was a hard no. Especially since it was a family membership with kid under mom's name.
