January 2019: Kelly Sears Consulting Group has been engaged by the Department of Justice Canada to undertake a review of child support models internationally. In Canada, the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada is responsible for the Federal Child Support Guidelines (regulations under the Divorce Act) which consist of a set of rules and tables used to determine child support amounts in divorce cases. Kelly Sears is examining the models used in ten jurisdictions around the world. The study involves an extensive literature review together with interviews in the ten jurisdictions. The results of the study will be presented to the Federal/Provincial/Territorial Family Law Committee in the fall of 2019.
