Separated and divorced parents’ experiences with child support and related issues


I wish to first acknowledge all of the parents who generously gave their time to share their personal stories about their experiences regarding child support issues in Canada. Thank you for your thoughtful insights, experiences and suggestions. This project could not have been possible without the financial support of the Department of Justice Canada. As always, I am indebted to the support and encouragement of Dr. Cherami Wichmann, Senior Researcher, Research and Statistics Division, Department of Justice Canada. I am also appreciative of the support provided by representatives from the Department of Justice Canada (the Department) Family Law and Youth Justice Policy Section and the Research and Statistics Division for the many thoughtful comments and feedback on previous versions of this report.
