How have courts dealt with the difficulty of counting the 40% of a child's time with each parent?

British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Kimberly v. Good, 1998 CanLII 1026 (BC SC):

Numerous cases have dealt with the difficulty of counting the 40%, and as pointed out in Crick v. Crick, [1997] B.C.J. No. 222 (B.C.S.C.), section 9 appears to invite litigation over access and "embroils the parents in a minute consideration of the child's time with each parent".
