16. Any parent who makes an application for recalculation of child support must pay the fees set by regulation, in the proportion and according to the terms prescribed.
However, any parent who is financially eligible for legal aid under section 4.1 of the Act respecting legal aid and the provision of certain other legal services (chapter A-14) is exempted from the payment of those fees, subject to section 17. In addition, any parent who is financially eligible for contributory legal aid under section 4.2 of that Act is only required to pay fees up to the amount of the contribution that would otherwise be payable by the parent under that Act.
The Government may by regulation determine other cases in which a parent may be dispensed from the payment of those fees.
