About Us

The Child Support Recalculation Program, under the Family Support Order Services (FSOS) branch, helps parents with child support orders keep their support amounts current. The Recalculation Program (RP) increases Albertans’ access to justice by annually adjusting child support payments based on changes in the parents? incomes, rather than requiring them to return to court for a new order.
