Child Support Table Look-up

Important Tips for Using the Table Look-up
This child support table look-up will help you find the base amount of child support. Read the Step-by-Step Guide and the Table Look-up Disclaimer for more details. The Guide offers instructions and worksheets that will help explain how to calculate child support amounts.

You may wish to ask a lawyer for advice about your situation. The base amount is often not the final child support amount to be paid. For example, if there are special expenses such as child care or if you share custody, the amount will likely be different.

Under the Federal Child Support Guidelines, the table amount is determined by:

  • the number of children;
  • the province or territory where the paying parent lives; and
  • the paying parent’s before tax annual income.
