Type of service
Support Recalculation Services
Newfoundland and Labrador was the first jurisdiction in Canada to be designated under section 25.1 of the Divorce Act to automatically recalculate child support. Orders under Provincial legislation as well as under the Divorce Act can be recalculated. The Recalculation Office, based in Corner Brook, NL is a provincial service that helps parents maintain a fair standard of child support for their children. This assistance is provided when child support is ordered by the Court or is included in written agreements filed with the Court. The amount of child support is reviewed annually and adjusted if there is a change in the income of the person ordered to pay support. The service does not recalculate special/extraordinary expenses, shared custody or non-guideline amounts.
