Default Child support calculation

Hi,

I am looking at my paystub to figure out the child support amount and there are employer benefits do I have to count them as income?

-I put in $5000 to pension and so did my employer.


-I received money for eyeglasses


-I received money for the kids eye glasses that ex also benefited from.


thank you.

If this is to calculate current income then you use the weekly pay amount. If you are looking at the year to date then you look at the gross pay.

Otherwise you use your taxes/t4.

They gave me their paystubs and are asking for mine.
I gave them my tax return 5 months ago, but I suppose I have to give them pay stubs too, and black out a bunch of information?

You dont black anything out. You give them your last three pay stubs. They will look at the gross pay. Everything else is irrelevant.

how about the child benefit I recieved from the government, my ex requires me to add this in my financial statement so they can calculate child support. Do I need to claim it?

Benefits are not included for child support calculations. Not to mention if he is paying full table its only his income. Your income (minus the benefits) is what is used to calculate section 7 split.

in this case, i suppose the tax refund I received from the government is also excluded for calculating the child support?

Yes. Most agreements clearly state this about one parent being eligible to claim the benefits. If there is a daycare deduction, you take that off the cost of daycare that you split proportionate to income.

I have a feeling your ex is trying to include shit to say you have enough money for less child support. It doesnt work that way.

you are right, he is trying to make me increase my income so he can pay less while my son is living with me 90% of the time.

Thank you for replying me.
