Child support is calculated using the taxable incomes of parents. But that’s not all you should know. It’s also based on the spending patterns of intact families – strange but true.

The examples reveal how men can be hard done by. But, the child support scheme also affects women negatively. For example, some women with 50/50 or majority care have to pay child support.
