Child Support Payment
In British Columbia, it's typical for child support to be paid until the child is 19 years old. Certain factors may mean that payments continue beyond this age, however, such as illness, disability or if the child pursues post-secondary education. Our office can assist you if you're seeking a court order to obtain, change or end child support payments.
It's also important that you're aware your child support payments aren't tax-deductible, and that they aren't considered taxable income for the parent who receives the support.
