Financial contributions to a relationship can include:

  • The amount of money each person had at the outset of the relationship
  • Wages
  • Inheritance
  • Termination payments
  • Winnings

When the overall financial contributions to the relationship have been identified, the court will look at which parties made contributions and at what time.

The court will only consider expenditure from the relationship in circumstances where there is evidence of wastage.

Wastage includes money used for the following purposes:

  • Alcohol
  • Drugs
  • Gambling
  • Prostitution

Such expenditure must generally constitute more that 10% of the combined weekly income of the former partners.
