What are Section 7 Expenses?

What are Section 7 Expenses
  • Section 7 expenses, are also referred to as special or extraordinary expenses

  • Section 7 expenses also form part of the payments a parent might make as child support in Canada

  • While certain expenses might be extraordinary for one family, they might fall within what is considered reasonable for another.

  • If there is no agreement about these payments, or if both parents agree that no section 7 expenses apply, then the applicable child support payment will be only the table amount in the Guidelines.
