Who Is Entitled to Child Support?

Posted by on Sep 13, 2016 in Blog | 0 comments

When it comes to child support, there are a lot of variables involved. In order to help you understand who is entitled to child support, Family Law Helps, your divorce & family lawyer in Toronto & North York, has put together some basic information regarding the subject. Who Receives the Child Support? Child support is a child’s right and not a parent’s right. For this reason, parents find their rights limited when it comes to making child support deals. The parent that is caring for a child on a day-to-day basis is usually the one that receives the child-support.

If in the future, the parent who is paying child support stop making monthly child support payments (including his share of special expenses) then the parent who is receiving child support may file the separation agreement with FRO and the latter will enforce it in the same way as a court order. If there is a court order, then child support is enforced by Family Responsibility Office.
