Resolving child support disputes

Meet with a Child Support Resolution or Dispute Resolution Officer to reach a child support agreement for the welfare of your child.

These services are for parties who are involved in a child support matter – before they attend court.

With this service, you and the other party – and your lawyers, if applicable – meet with one of our resolution officers. After the meeting, we can either:

  • draft a Consent Order and submit it to the Court – if you and the other party reach a settlement
  • outline the next step(s) if you don’t reach a settlement
