Released on May 3, 2018The province is providing parents with an alternative way to update their child support amounts through the recently-launched Saskatchewan Child Support Recalculation Service.
“We are committed to helping alleviate child poverty, including by helping to ensure that child support amounts are fair and up-to-date,” said Jody Wilson-Raybould, Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada. “We are also committed to making family justice more accessible and less stressful for families experiencing a separation or divorce. This project will help to achieve those goals, and for that reason, we are happy to support it, and support families.”
Parents have an obligation to disclose changes in their income to ensure child support amounts are kept up-to-date. The Child Support Recalculation Service will require the parent paying child support to send updated financial information so that child support amounts can be updated accordingly. In instances where the parent does not provide the requested financial information, the amount may be increased as set out in The Family Maintenance Regulations, 1998.
The pilot will initially be focused on the Regina area. Parents who wish to take part in the pilot can call 1-833-825-1445 or apply online at www.saskatchewan.ca/child-support-recalculation.
The Ministry of Justice’s Maintenance Enforcement Office collected and distributed $42.7 million in child support payments in 2016-17.
