Communicate changes that are important for the receipt of maintenance advance


For the entire period of receipt of benefits, you must notify the maintenance advance office of any important changes. You must notify any changes that may be important to the claim or about which you have made statements in connection with the maintenance advance.

You must indicate the changes after 14 days at the latest.

Examples of changes:

  • Your child no longer lives with you.
  • They are moving.
  • They get married.
  • They move in with the other parent.
  • The other parent pays alimony again or wants to pay alimony again.
  • The previously unknown whereabouts of the other parent become known to you.
  • The other parent died.
  • The child died.
  • The child no longer attends school.
  • In the case of the child who no longer attends school, the income changes (because, for example, the amount of the training allowance changes).

Notifications to other authorities are not sufficient.

Intentional or negligent breach of these obligations is an administrative offence and may result in criminal prosecution or a fine. In addition, the benefits paid can be reclaimed.

  • You will receive an advance on alimony.
  • There are changes.
  • You have 14 days to notify a change.
  • Proof of the respective changes, for example
    • Pay slips
    • Proof of completion of school career
    • Proof of payment changes made by the other parent (bank statement)

There are no costs.
