Hi, thank you for your question. Your child maintenance liability is based only on your circumstances and the CMS/CSA assess this liability on your gross taxable income. Their assessment and calculation will only reduce your liability if you have other children in your care or the child spends more time overnight with you. Your current relationship circumstances will not impact the assessment unless you have children residing with you. Furthermore, child maintenance liability is not impacted if your name is ***** ***** the birth certificate and you can only end the liability if you can prove that you are not the father by having a DNA test.
If they adopt the child then your child maintenance liability will end.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you.
