The supplement is paid to the parent receiving the Family Allowance payment.
In the event of a conjugal breakdown, the amount of the supplement will be divided between the 2 parents who have shared custody of the child, or the parent with sole custody of the child will receive the full payment. This takes effect once we been notified of the separation.
We consider that a child is in sole custody when the child lives alternately with each parent between 40% and 60% of the time each month (for example: 3 days a week or 12 days a month). If custody of the child is shared between one parent and another person, the parent's percentage of custody time must be a minimum of 40% but not more than 49% each month.
