If you are separating

Good to know if you are separating

If you are separating from the other parent of your child, it is important to discuss how you will divide up responsibility for the care and support of the child. Support of the child may be affected by the fact that you are no longer living together. A separation can also change what allowances and benefits you can receive from Försäkringskassan.

Agree on child support

If the child lives with only one of the parents, the other parent must pay child support or ensure the child is supported in some other way. The size of the child support is affected by the child’s needs and the parents’ financial abilities.

Child support – when the child lives with you

Child support – when the child does not live with you

If the child lives about an equal amount with both parents, nobody needs to pay child support for the child. But in some cases it may be reasonable, for example, if one parent has a higher income than the other.

Maintenance support

The child may be entitled to maintenance support if both parents have a low income.

Maintenance support – upon alternating living arrangements for parents with low income

Maintenance support can also be paid to the parent with whom the child lives if the other parent does not pay child support.

Help through the municipality

If you have a hard time agreeing on access (visitation), custody, living arrangements and child support, you can turn to your municipality to get help through a cooperation discussion. The cooperation discussion is free of charge and is an opportunity for you to find common solutions for the child's best interest without having to go to court.

If you have had cooperation discussions and received help from Försäkringskassan but you still cannot agree on issues relating to the child, you can take the matter to the district court. Contact a legal representative to find out what you should do.

Child allowance

If you and the other parent are in agreement and can register together, you do this on a form that you both sign.

If you register together, the request is processed more quickly than if you register by yourself.

If you and the other parent are not in agreement and you register by yourself, register using My pages (Mina sidor).

Once you have registered, we will start an investigation of where the child lives and who is entitled to the child allowance.  We begin by contacting the other parent and asking questions to determine whether information we have about where the child lives is correct. We will contact you if we need you to provide more information.

Since we need to check the information with the other parent, it will take longer to process the case if you register by yourself rather than you registering together.
