Canada Child Benefit, ccb during marriage and after separation

Canada Child Benefit
  • Qualifying families may receive a payment of up to $6,765 per year for children under 6 years of age.

  • In addition, they may receive up to $5,708 per year for children between 6 and 17 years of age.

  • One of the primary problems is the CRA’s treatment of situations of shared custody, there is a strong possibility that each family would receive less overall.

  • How much you can get for CCB depends on several factors.

  • In certain situations, the CRA may conduct a child tax benefit audit.

  • You will be required to split CCB with the other parent if you have shared custody.
