British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Mohamed v Martone, 2019 BCSC 38 (CanLII):

A significant change in child support payable by a party is, based on clear authority, a material change in circumstance that provides a basis for variation in child support. In Goodkey v. Goodkey, 2015 ABCA 394, the court stated at para. 21 that “it is clear that the termination of child support would have constituted a change of circumstance in this case.”
