We consider care to be exchanged care in certain circumstances.
Exchanged care is where all of the following apply:
- you have 2 or more children with a severe illness or severe disability who need a lot of care
- the other parent isn’t your partner
- you exchange the care of the children with the other parent
- both parents give a lot of care to 1 of the children every day and you have a current parenting plan or parenting order stating your caring arrangements.
