Have your say on the draft Regulation respecting the recalculation of child support payments


The Department of Justice is seeking public comment on proposed regulations for the child support recalculation service.

The Child Support Recalculation Service will be a free service available to families with eligible child support orders and agreements, either under the territorial Children’s Law Act or the Federal Child Support Act. divorce. Currently, when parents want to have their child support orders updated, they have to go to court, which is often time-consuming, stressful and expensive.

The Child Support Recalculation Service aims to reduce the need for parents to go to court to update child support amounts. This service will allow support amounts to be recalculated annually based on updated income information.

The Department of Justice has drafted regulations that set out the rules for the operation of the child support recalculation service. NWT residents are encouraged to review the proposed regulations at the Child Support Recalculation Service and may submit comments to [email protected] by July 5, 2022. These comments will help inform any potential changes to the proposed draft regulations.
