DIVORCEmate Support Calculator

DIVORCEmate has a tool called “MySupportCalculator” which provides the Canadian public with very simple, straightforward child and/or spousal support calculations. The link is www.mysupportcalculator.ca However, it should be noted that legal advice is still needed because the Support Calculator does not allow for some of the even “normal” or standard expenses to be added to the calculations. This tool should be used for a very rough idea of child and spousal support.
