Dependents in a Bankruptcy in Canada
June 20th, 2005 by Questions
I know that dependents allow you to keep more during a bankruptcy.
If I have my boys part time and pay support do they count as dependents? I have two boys that I take part time plus I pay child support.
Why I ask if my two boys, who live with me part-time, count as dependants, for bankruptcy purposes is:
1) CRA disallowed my equivalent to marriage claim stating they don’t live with me enough (though they live with me part time) – possibly this is due to me paying support although I just pay it for my youngest
2) For student loan interest relief purposes I have only 1 dependant, as when I started interest relief my autistic child didn’t live part time with me
So for bankruptcy purposes how many dependents do I have? Do #1 or #2 matter? How do I prove they’re dependents?
PS I love this service. I mean, it helps prepare me for the eventual event. It’s a great service! Thank you!
