Default Post secondary and living arrangements

Hi,
If my kid goes to post secondary but lives in a rental condo I purchase, are they considered to be living at home (and will my ex need to continue paying CS), or will it be considered “living away”?

You will still need to contribute to heat hydro, food, water etc.

When you calculate it out, the price may be the same as cs.

Plus you are on the hook for the costs of the condo.

To me that is not living at home as it is a rental. It is not your primary residence.

My leaning is with this as well.

The child's primary residence for the duration of the school year would not be the custodial parents address. So c/s would cease. The costs for the condo for the child to attend I think would be split the same as other post secondary costs, 1/3rd to the child and the remaining 2/3rds to the parents proportionally to income.

But the custodial parent could argue the living expenses are not necessary as kid could live with them therefore they are not paying them.

That’s assuming the parents live in the same location as the school. I have a few friends who had parents purchase homes in the city they went to school to save on costs

True but I have a feeling this is more about not paying support. I could be wrong but some questions are popping up in my head.

Actually if you read the first post it seems they want their ex to continue paying support while the child lives in the condo

Yes but if you read the other thread they started you can see my thoughts...

Will I need to pay full child support (table amount) AND extraordinary expenses? Will my RESP contributions count as MY contribution to her university fees or will it be considered the child’s contribution?

Thanks in advance for advice!

Yes I have read the other thread... it’s once again parents trying to one up each other. Rather than thinking of the children one wants CS and the other doesn’t want to pay
