Hello Tayken:

Awhile back you posted an interim CS order in a 50/50 child custody whereby "half offset was used vs. normal FULL offset".

Example: tables say Parent A would pay $700 per month

Parent B would pay $500 per month

Full offset: Parent A pays Parent B $200 per month

Half Offset: tables suggest $1200 a month total, so each pays $600. Therefore Parent A pays parent B $100.

Basically, makes a BIG difference for Parent A (ie. HALF of CS).

I ran your Canlii reference by my lawyer but he said since only an "interim" and not final CS order not really relevent. Lawyer said courts would usually use ONLY "full" NOT "half" offset.

Can you comment ? Any case law showing FINAL CS order based on Half offset ?

Any help would be REALLY appreciated. Thanks !
