How to Calculate Child Support in Alberta
Alberta child support is calculated using the Federal Child Support Guidelines and gross parental income. If children live with only one of their parents, only the income of the paying parent is taken into consideration. If the children live with each parent approximately the same amount of time, child support is calculated for each parent separately and the amounts are set-off against each other. The result is that only the higher earning spouse pays child support.
