Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello! My name is***** you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.
I am sorry to hear this.
Are you saying the mother is not working and gets social assistance?Do you believe she can work but is deliberately unemployed?
So you can apply to the court to reduce the child support based on the fact the mother should and could be worker but is deliberately not employed.
The court will impute income to her and set the support based on her imputed income.
That way you will be able to reduce the support you pay her.
Does that help as a starting point?Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
So what if she is under stress. Who isn't?
If she can bring in medical evidence that she is unemployable for now that would help her for now.
Is there anything more I can help you with at this point in time?
