Family Law – Child support
Child and spousal support when you are on social assistance
This booklet explains under what circumstances a person on social assistance is expected to try to get support payments from someone who is or was their spouse or same-sex partner, or who is the other parent of their children, and what they are expected to do. It talks about how support payments affect benefits and what to do if support payments are late or not paid.
- Will child support payments affect the amount of social assistance I get?
