This deals with support and financial, or property, issues. It talks about what needs to be in certain agreements and applies to both married and common law couples.
This only applies to married couples. It deals with support and child issues, but not property.
This deals with custody and access regulations.
This sets out the legislation governing child support.
This is a way to put in the amount of money the support payor earns and the number of children in order to find out how much child support is to be paid. Technically, this only applies to child support matters raised under the Federal Divorce Act for married couples. But each province has enacted its own Child Support guideline that, except for Quebec, use the same wording and sections as the Federal Guidelines.So just referring to the “Guidelines” is good enough because they both say the same thing.
As with the other provinces, Ontario has enacted its own version of the Child Support Guidelines that are identical in wording and numbering to the Federal Guidelines. This is to cover common law couples or situations where the parents have no relationship other than shared parentage of the child.
People refer to “the Guidelines” or ”the child support guidelines” or “the CSGs” without worrying about whether they mean the federal or provincial Guidelines, because they have the same wording.
This is the legislation that governs the Family Responsibility Office (FRO) in connection with the collection of child and spousal support.
