How are extraordinary expenses usually divided?. Dad makes $100,000/yr, mom stays at home with younger children and makes approx $6000/yr for self-employment. Would 10/90 or 20/80 split seem reasonable? He is asking for 30/70 split

Under Ontario law, extraordinary expenses are usually split in proportion to the incomes of each parent. In your case, you indicate that the mom makes less than 1/10th of what the father makes. Under the normal rules the mother would only be obliged to pay extraordinary expenses in that same proportion, i.e. less than 1/10th of the total expenses. However, the parents of a child are entitled to agree to share extraordinary expenses in a different proportion. However, the father’s proposal for a 30/70 split seems to be unfair and significantly out of balance, in light of the described income levels.
