Toronto, Canada, August 01, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- In his newest and third edition of "Children with 2 homes," a book critical of Canada's child-support guidelines, the author Lucien Khodeir identifies seven distinct flaws in those guidelines and recommends a simple solution.
"First, Canada's child-support guidelines assume that the payer and the recipient earn the same income. Second, they assume that the payer incurs no child-related expenses when his children visit him. Third, they assume that the recipient does not save any money when her children visit the payer. Fourth, they assume that the payer incurs no child-related expenses in providing a second home for his children. Fifth, they discriminate against certain children within the same household. Sixth, their shared-custody provisions are illogical. Seventh, their split-custody provisions are illogical," says Mr. Khodeir.
"Unlike the first two editions, this edition was partly composed mindful of the public at large, and I think it will appeal to many more readers. The first chapter is available to read online to prove my point," says Mr. Khodeir.
"This edition includes, for the first time, a section of exercises with solutions to allow readers to learn how to use a child-support spreadsheet available online at childrenwith2homes.ca. The spreadsheet allows readers and visitors of the web site to conduct what-if analyses to better understand the seven flaws of Canada's child-support guidelines," explains Mr. Khodeir.
The first edition of the book was released in March 2008 and the second edition in May 2008. The book was translated into French under the title, "Enfants avec 2 demeures." The third edition retails for $29.95 inclusive of taxes, and handling and shipping charges, and is available for sale exclusively at childrenwith2homes.ca starting July 31st, 2008.
