Dear Friend,

Hello and welcome. Thank you for providing an opportunity to assist you.

YES--You should be eligible along with your partner / to receive equal amount of CCB -- Canada Child Benefits. Let me explain.

In your case, the custody of the Child is shared. I mean, for 50% for time, she is with you and for the 50% of the time she is with her mother.

You share custody of a child if the child lives with two different individuals in separate residences on a more or less equal basis, such as:

  • the child lives with one parent four days a week and the other parent three days a week;
  • the child lives with one parent one week and the other parent the following week; or
  • any other regular cycle of alternation.

In these cases, both individuals may be considered primarily responsible for the child’s care and upbringing when the child lives with them. Each individual will get 50% of the payment they would have received if the child lived with them all of the time.

This is how you will apply for the benefits.

For more information, go to Canada child benefit or call 1-***-***-****

Your payments will be recalculated accordingly.

I am sure this would help.

You may please leave a positive rating if this helps as this is the only way we are compensated for assisting you. Alternatively, you may revert back with a reply if you need further assistance or if I have missed out on any aspect of your question.

Warm Regards,
