Kerry White

In property settlements the Court looks at four different types of contributions that each party made to the relationship. Parental contributions are one of these four. The Court looks at who performed the parenting duties in the relationship. The parenting duties include the raising of the children, dropping them to school, helping with their homework etc.

The Court is not concerned with the quality of parenting performed by the person claiming to be the main contributor to the parental responsibilities in the relationship. The availability of the parent claiming to have made the significant contribution is essential in determining the contribution percentage.

If the parents have made parental help for example hiring a nanny this will often be considered as a factor in discounting the amount of parental contributions provided by the party.
