Child Maintenance

The parents take care of the maintenance of the child according to their maintenance capacity and the child’s maintenance needs. Factors that will be taken into account when assessing the parents’ maintenance capacity are age, work capacity, possibility to work, disposable funds, and other maintenance obligations.

Mainly, the child’s right to receive maintenance from his/her parents ends when the child becomes 18 years of age. Even after this the parents are responsible of the costs of the child’s education, if this is considered reasonable (education allowance).
