This came from my partners lawyer in relation to a contribution from someone else. For instance, my partners ex in laws provided a portion of kids cost for school. That amount could not be used to reduce the full cost before split or reduce the paying parents cost. They allocated it to the kids portion.

He also referenced Lewi v. Lewi where the father felt the grandfathers $20000 bequeath to each grandson should have been used for the full cost of school. Judge ruled the amount left to each kid could be used for their portion not to reduce the amount payable by dad.
