2017 Child Support Table Look-up
This version of the Child Support Table Look-up (online look-up) is based on updated Federal Child Support Tables that do not take effect until November 22, 2017. You may use it to calculate a child support amount for a period from that date onward, but use the 2011 Child Support Table Look-up to calculate a child support amount for a period before that date.
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. It also has information on special or extraordinary expenses that may need to be added to the basic child support amount.
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.
