Child Support Recalculation Service

The Child Support Recalculation Service provides a faster, less costly and less adversarial alternative to the courts for parents to use when updating child support amounts.

1. About the Program

The Saskatchewan Child Support Recalculation Service is a pilot project that helps families with child support orders ensure a fair level of support for their children. The program will recalculate child support based on information reported on the most recent income tax returns of a support payor. The pilot will initially be focused on the Regina area. There is no cost to apply. 

The goal of the program is to update child support amounts to reflect changes in income, without burdening families with the time and expense of pursuing those adjustments through court processes.
