If the parents of a child are not living together at the time the child is born, the mother will be entitled to have a proportion of her expenses relating to the birth reimbursed by the other parent. Birth support is a lump sum of DKK 942 in 2024.
You and the other parent can draw up an agreement concerning birth support yourselves. You do not need to involve the Agency of Family Law in the agreement. If you are unable to reach an agreement, you can apply for birth support from the Agency of Family Law.
