It cannot change any of the terms in the support order or domestic contract. My original order issued August 2, 2006 stated: "Each year, no later than the 1st of June, each party shall provide the other the information required by s.21 of the Guidelines, including a complete copy of their income tax return filed for the immediately preceding taxation year, all attachments and any notices of assessment that have been received." This ensures that if there is a change in income for the payor, it is taken into consideration and the support payments adjusted accordingly either up or down.
To date I have never received my ex-husband's tax return voluntarily.

It is also the most complained about provincial government organization.
Special expenses like child care, shared custody, a child over 19 years of age with an illness, disability or attending university are all reasons that adjustments can be made.
The FRO is a provincial body that enforces court orders. A date for the exchange of income tax returns is stated in the final order issued by the court.
To give only a few examples, we frequently encounter situations in which one or more children have finished school, have changed residence between parents or have new special expenses such as post-secondary costs.
These and other circumstances that occur in the ordinary year by year life of a separated family require review and recalculation of child support and spousal support provisions in court orders and in separation agreements.
