Child Support Guidelines in Canada, 2022 continues the tradition of presenting comprehensive, current caselaw and analysis in a very practical and easily accessible format. Relevant cases from every Canadian province and territory are cited in support of the principles set out in the textual commentary. Significant changes have been introduced in chapters 11 and 13 with respect to retroactive child support orders and remission of child support arrears following the Supreme Court of Canada’s judgments in Michel v Graydon and Colucci v Colucci.
This book will be of special interest to judges, legal practitioners, mediators, arbitrators, parenting coordinators, and other professionals who require a detailed understanding of child support rights and obligations in Canada. It also provides a unique source of information for paralegals and for law students and their professors, and to members of the public who require an understanding of the legal complexities relating to child support rights and obligations in Canada.
Child Support Guidelines in Canada, 2022 is a companion volume to the ninth edition of Payne and Payne, Canadian Family Law which is also published by Irwin Law. Previous editions of both texts have been cited in hundreds of judicial decisions across Canada, including the Supreme Court of Canada and appellate courts from coast to coast.
