Overview

The Child Support Resolution (CSR) program is mandatory for all applications for child support by self-represented parties in the Court of Queen’s Bench.

You will meet with an officer for a one hour appointment. The officer is a family lawyer who will calculate child support amounts and help you to resolve your child support dispute.

If you and the other party reach an agreement, a Consent Order can be typed up for you to sign and then be reviewed by a judge, without you having to go to court.

Eligibility

If you are applying to change child support (you are the applicant) and have hired a lawyer, you do not qualify for the CSR program.

If you are receiving income support through Community and Social Services, you might not qualify for this program. Contact the CSR program for more information.
