Opening of Child Support Recalculation Program

This administrative program will annual recalculate child support in eligible court orders based on current income tax information. Its goal is to increase access to the justice system by helping parents keep child support levels in line with income, so parents can avoid the time and expense of asking the courts to review their child support orders.

The Family Law Amendment Act, 2008 and the Child Support Recalculation Program Regulation, which provide the legislative foundation for the program will be in force on January 1, 2010. Visit for details.
