Assertion of the right to maintenance of the mother of a child born out of wedlock

Service Description

If you, as the mother of the child, cannot agree with the legal father of the child on an appropriate amount of maintenance, you can assert a claim for maintenance on the occasion of the birth in court. The course of such court proceedings is essentially governed by the rules applicable to civil proceedings.

If you, as the mother of the child, cannot be expected to work due to the care or upbringing of the child, you are also entitled to a claim for childcare maintenance for the period of at least 4 months before the birth and at least 3 years after the birth, or longer if necessary, in addition to the existing claim for maintenance for the period of 6 weeks before and 8 weeks after the birth. The father may also be entitled to childcare maintenance from the mother if he looks after the child.

Theamount of maintenance is calculated according to the recognized principles of maintenance calculation, which fill in the undefined legal terms of maintenance law. For details, please contact the legal counseling professions.

Further information can also be found in the maintenance guidelines of the Higher Regional Courts.
