Default Common law separation advice and experience

I've been in a common law relationship for 5 years in ontario, have a 4 year old daughter. Unfortunately the relationship is not working and we will have to separate.

I have talked to my spouse and she seems ok with 50/50 custody of our child.

She has not contributed to any bill/mortgage/taxes/expenses on the house that i own (i owned the house before we got together) etc. she has purchased the groceries, most of the child clothes, and payed for daycare (costing ~4000 parents watched her most of the time)

There is approximately 30000 dollars difference in incomes (I have the higher income)...when i look at the table and difference in looks as though i will need to pay her ~250 dollars a month.

we both have good work benefits.

Does this seem correct? Are there other claims and expenses I'm not taking into consideration?

Sorry I'm just beginning the process and it seems overwhelming
