Northwest Territories Child Support Calculator

A child support calculator for the Northwest Territories. Calculate child support by entering the paying parent's income and the number of children in the calculator below.

This calculator is for sole custody situations, i.e. where the child lives with one parent at least 40% of the time. For other situations like shared custody and spousal support calculations, or to calculate support for special expenses like child care or activities, try the Divorcepath child support calculator.

Northwest Territories FlagCollecting child support in the Northwest Territories can be very difficult. A recent article suggests as much as $10 million is owed by non-custodial parents in the NWT. The system is facing challenges. However, if you don't bring a claim you will never collect - regardless of whether the system is reformed or not.

We strongly recommend that you contact a family lawyer practicing in the Northwest Territories before bringing a child support claim. However, some free legal resources should be available at the Supreme Court of The Northwest Territories, in Yellowknife, which you can use to bring your own child support claim.
