If you are not living together when your child is to be confirmed, the parent bearing the expense of the confirmation can get the other parent to cover parts of the confirmation expenses. If you are bearing the confirmation expense, you may be eligible to claim a confirmation / clothing allowance from the child’s other parent.
You can also apply for the allowance even if your child is not being confirmed.
The confirmation / clothing allowance is a single payment of DKK 3,984 (2023).
There are several criteria that determine eligibility for the allowance. You can read more about these on the Agency of Family Law’s website (in Danish).
You are not eligible to apply if one of the parents is deceased or if the child’s paternity has not been legally established.
