Rose Anne Devlin () and
Working Papers from University of Ottawa, Department of Economics
The new Federal Child Support Guidelines came into effect on May 1, 1997. Henceforth, child support awards depend only upon the non-custodial parent's income, the number of children of the marriage and the province of residence. We present a simulation analysis which identifies winners and losers from the introduction of the new system.
