THE AGES OF THE CHILDREN
The court has discretion to depart from the presumptive Table amount for eligible children over the age of majority if the court finds that amount inappropriate, having consideration to the financial means, needs, and condition of the child and the parents.
Relevant considerations are:
- The child’s ability to earn income.
- The availability of loans, scholarships, and bursaries if the child is enrolled at a post-secondary institution.
- The child’s performance at school or in a postsecondary institution.
- The child’s full-time attendance at school or the reason for part-time attendance; and
- The child’s budget.
