If you wish to apply for child support, you must fill in and send an application form to the Agency of Family Law (Familieretshuset).
An education contribution is a contribution which is paid between parents who do not live together but who have children aged 18 to 25 in education. The contribution is paid by the parent that the child does not live with.
If the child does not live with either of its parents, it is the parent who provides for the child who can apply for the contribution.
If a child has an income of in excess of DKK 6,000 per month (2023), their parents cannot normally apply for an education contribution. The DKK 6,000 is inclusive of any support from the Danish Students' Grants and Loans Scheme (SU).
The income of both the contributor and the child determines whether an education contribution will be paid. For example, if you have 2 children, you may be required to pay the contribution if you earn more than DKK 480,000 a year (2023). You can read more about the criteria for education contributions on the Agency of Family Law's website.
