The State Hits Up Dads Again, For It Needs MONEY!!
The Supreme Court of Canada has ruled ex-spouses could face retroactive child support payments, if they fail to declare increased earnings. This will affect thousands of fathers across Canada.
In a unanimous: 7-0 vote . The top unelected court decided that fathers, in the vast majority of cases must report increases in income which will therefore boost their court-ordered payments.
“A payor parent who does not increase his-her child support payments to correspond with his-her income will not have fulfilled his-her obligation to his-her children.” “Parents have an obligation to support their children in a way that is commensurate with their income,” said Justice Michel Bastarache, writing the opinion for the Judges that earn well over the average salary of blue collar men.
Retroactive penalties will start hitting fathers across Canada, if they fail to inform their ex-partner about any changes to their income. Families are going to be scurrying around trying to figure out what child support should have been paid over the course of the last decade.
700,000 families could be affected by this decision. It has the potential to have an enormous financial impact on an enormous number of Canadians, keep lawyers making more money off families and string out the Canadian Government a little further avoiding the coming doom.
