CRA told me that you need to clearly state that "both parties have a legal obligation to pay child support".

Even though my agreement had a set-off, it stated both parties had a legal obligation to pay child support. Do not use any "set-off" language it will raise flags like it did for me.

Make it super clear, you need to explicitly state
i) party 1 is legally obligated to pay party 2
ii) party 2 is legally obligated to pay party 1.

hope this helps
btw my appeal just came through last week so this is still fresh for me.
This helps a lot, thank you!

So this only has to be in the separation agreement?

Do I add this clause to the separation agreement?:

1. To satisfy both parties obligation to pay child support:
(i) party 1 is legally obligated to pay party 2
(ii) party 2 is legally obligated to pay party 1.
