Child support is governed by both provincial/territorial and federal law. In determining child-related issues such as custody, access, and support, a court must approve any arrangement based on the "best interests of the child" test. Generally, if both parents reach an agreement on these issues, a court will be willing to include that agreement in the formal legal documents. However, there is always the possibility that a court will require a modification of the agreement if it determines that it is not in the best interests of the children involved.
