Child support is generally payable for children who are under the age of 18. The child support formula applies in most cases and takes into account the incomes of the parents, the living arrangements of the children and the children's ages.

In some circumstances the formula does not apply. For example, the taxable income of a parent may not be the same as the current income or the children have special needs or attend private school by agreement between the parents.
