Table Look-up Disclaimer

The Child Support Table Look-up has general information only. It is not a legal document. The tables were last updated December 31, 2011. To determine how much child support is owed from May 1, 2006 to December 31, 2011, use the 2006 tables. Note that provincial or territorial guidelines may apply in some cases.

Note: Several companies sell software for calculating child support. Be aware that the Department of Justice was not involved in the development of that software.
