CanadianCRC Editor's note:

These Federal Support Guidelines for child support came into effect in 1997. In the planning stages of the bill,  they included an annual adjustment by the federal government based on income tax returns filed federally. The guidelines already include an automatic increase in payments to adjust for inflation without consideration of the payer's income has increase or decreased.

Note that the payment recipient's income isn't mentioned because it generally isn't considered in the calculation of child financial support. Generally, parents must parent their child at least 40% of the time in order to have their parenting time considered in the child support equation.

Generally, under the Federal Support Guidelines, parents living in poverty at an annual income of $10,000 which have 35% of the parenting time are required to pay child financial support to a parent with 65% of the parenting time earning $150,000 per year.

Obviously a parent living well below the poverty line on $10,000 per year can't afford to pay for even have an extra bedroom for their child to stay overnight. They also can't afford any other costs for their child during their parenting time such as food.

The 1998 Special Joint Committee on Custody and Access, a federal committee comprising members of The Senate of Canada and The House of Commons, held hearings across Canada and heard from over 500 witnesses. They concluded in their report that child support laws should consider the income and child raising expenses of both parents.

VICTORIA Separated parents will be better able to manage the financial demands of raising children through a new pilot program launched this month in Kelowna, Attorney General Wally Oppal announced today.

Every parent knows that raising children requires years of dedication and care, no matter whether the familys income level rises or falls while they are growing up, said Oppal. This innovative Child Support Recalculation Service will, for the first time, allow many child support payments to be automatically changed to reflect changes in a payors income on an annual basis without having to return to court.

The program involves parents who pay child support following separation or divorce. They are asked to provide updated financial information, such as income tax returns, which is then used to recalculate and update the child support amount. There is no charge for the recalculation.

Payor parents whose income has changed will have their support amount adjusted, based on an increase or decrease in income, to more accurately reflect their current ability to pay. However, if financial information requested is not provided, maintenance will be recalculated based on an assumed 10 per cent increase in the payors income.

Kelowna families will be the first in the province to benefit from this progressive program designed to stabilize relationships between separated parents and their children, said Kelowna-Lake Country MLA Al Horning. Too often, changes in a payors income level result in a permanent breakdown of relationships that negatively affects the whole family.

This is a positive step in supporting children and providing families with a practical means to resolve financial issues surrounding separation and divorce without involving an onerous and sometimes adversarial court process, said Okanagan-Westside MLA Rick Thorpe.

This new approach has strong support from the Office of the Chief Judge because it is better for families, said Kelowna-Mission MLA Sindi Hawkins. In addition, it frees court time to focus on matters that need the full support of the court system

The pilot program applies to provincial court support orders issued on or after June 1, 2006 in Kelowna. Some exemptions under the Family Relations Act may apply. Staff from the Family Justice Services Division of the Ministry of Attorney General will contact parents to inform them of their obligations and timeframes for an annual review of income and support payments.

The pilot project will be extended to Vancouver and Surrey. Following evaluation of all three sites, it may be extended to other areas of the province.

3 in 4 B.C. boys on street sexually exploited by women

VANCOUVER - Canada's largest study into the sexual exploitation of street kids and runaways has shattered some myths about who the abusers might be - with the most surprising finding being that many are women seeking sex with young males.

"Some youth in each gender were exploited by women with more than three out of four (79 per cent) sexually exploited males reporting exchanging sex for money or goods with a female," said Elizabeth Saewyc, associate professor of nursing at the University of British Columbia and principal investigator for the study conducted by Vancouver's McCreary Centre Society.

"I must admit it wasn't something we were expecting."

Mom drugged daughter to get her pregnant: police

Associate Press, U.S.A.
April 3, 2009

PITTSBURGH (AP) - A western Pennsylvania mother has been charged with giving her 13-year-old daughter drugs and alcohol so the woman's boyfriend could impregnate the girl without her knowing, police said Thursday.

Shana Brown, 32, is no longer able to have children but wanted to have a baby with her current boyfriend, Duane Calloway, said Uniontown Police Detective Donald Gmitter. The pair decided to drug the girl so Calloway, 40, could have sex with her, he added.

"There's some sick people on this case," Gmitter said.

Brown has been charged with endangering the welfare of a child, turned herself in Thursday and was being held in the Fayette County jail, police said. Brown's attorney did not return a call for comment.

Calloway faces several counts of attempted rape. He was arrested Wednesday and remains in jail. It was not immediately clear whether he had an attorney.

The three attacks occurred in Brown's home in Uniontown, about 50 miles south of Pittsburgh, according to the criminal complaint.

Our blind rage at women who abuse

Because we assume women never commit child sexual abuse, we treat one who is accused with disproportionate disgust

The Guardian, UK
June 11, 2009

About 20 years ago, I gave a talk about sexual abuse to the RAF. At the end, a young airman came up to me and said, "It's not just men, you know," before hurriedly walking away. That pulled me up sharp. Up till then, like most people working in the area of sexual abuse, I'd always assumed the abusers were men.

This just isn't so. We can't be sure of the precise prevalence of sexual abuse by women, as there hasn't been enough research into the subject. Academics have just assumed it doesn't happened. But conservative estimates suggest that 5% of girls and 20% of boys who have reported being abused have been abused by women. From my own research - I have had 800 cases reported to me - I believe the more likely figure is that it is 20% of all sexual abuse that is done by women.

It is women themselves who have done most to propagate this conspiracy of silence. It has almost become a feminist axiom that it is men who are to blame for abuse and that if women are in some way implicated, it is only because they have somehow been forced or controlled into doing so against their will. Again, this turns out to be completely incorrect: 75% of the cases reported to me involved women acting on their own.  Read More ..
