Yes of course your former spouse can bring an application for child support. The fact that the marriage was annulled is irrelevant. If you are the biological father of the children then you have a support obligation which is determined under the Child Support Guidelines. If the matter goes to court you will be ordered to pay the Table amount that accords to your Line 150 income.
