Legislative Update – Family Maintenance Regulations
September 22, 2020
The Family Maintenance Amendment Regulations have recently been amended. The Family Maintenance Amendment Regulations, 2020 came into effect on September 15, 2020. Section 21.1 of the amended regulations applies to the recalculation of child support. These changes include:
Child support agreements made on or after March 15, 2018 may be recalculated if the agreement is eligible for recalculation and is filed in accordance with section 11 of The Family Maintenance Act.
The mandatory clauses required to be included in every child support order and agreement are amended.
An application for recalculation can be made 6 months from the date of the most recent agreement, order or recalculation decision. (The application period is reduced from 12 months.)
Recalculation can proceed where one of the dependants listed is 18 years of age or older, where the parties agree support is not required for that person, or the Maintenance Enforcement Office is collecting a lesser amount for the remaining children.
