Child support is the right of the child not the parent. The amount of child support paid is determined by the Child Support Guidelines – this is a government mandate. The payor pays a stipulated amount of monthly support based on his or her gross annual income and determining income for a self-employed person can pose a challenge – this is when experts are required to determine income. Child support is not tax deductible to the payor and it is not taxable income to the recipient. The exception to straight Table support payable is when there is a “shared” parenting regime. Child support provides for the daily expenses incurred for the child’s benefit such as housing, food and clothing. Additional expenses such as tutoring, medical expenses not covered under an insurance plan and extracurricular activities are paid for by the parties in accordance with their incomes.
