Does the fact that an expense relates to an extracurricular activity bring the amount of child support under s. 7 of the Child Support Guidelines (e.g. expenses) into s.7 of the child support table?

British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Lee v. Chung, 2011 BCSC 404 (CanLII):

The fact that an expense relates to an extracurricular activity does not automatically bring the entire amount within s. 7 because the basic child support under the applicable table is presumed to include an allowance for some extracurricular activities: Laurie v. Laurie, 2002 BCCA 317 at para. 5.
