Apply for advance maintenance payments for children of single parents

Service Description

You will receive advance maintenance payments for your child if you are raising it in your household without another parent against whom the child is entitled to maintenance. However, this maintenance is not paid by the other parent/debtor, or is paid incompletely or irregularly.

If the eligibility requirements are met, the maintenance advance will be paid to you until your child reaches the age of majority.

The amount of the maintenance advance is based on the minimum maintenance amount. The advance maintenance payment is paid monthly in the amount of the minimum maintenance for the relevant age group. The amount of child benefit is deducted from this if the single parent is entitled to full child benefit.

Since 01.01.2024, the following amounts apply for the maintenance advance:

  • 230 euros per month for children up to 5 years of age
  • for children from 6 to 11 years 301 euros per month
  • for children from 12 to 18 years 395 euros per month
