Children of separation will be entitled to higher maintenance from next year.

This emerges from the new so-called Düsseldorf table, which the Higher Regional Court (OLG) of the North Rhine-Westphalian state capital published on Monday.

In the income class up to 1900 euros, the minimum maintenance for children aged up to five years will increase from January 1st by 41 to 437 euros compared to the previous year.

For children from six to eleven there is then 502 euros and thus 47 euros more.

For children from 12 to 17 years it is a total of 588 euros - 55 euros more.

The rates also increase for adult children and in other income groups.

The "Düsseldorf table" is the guideline for all higher regional courts in Germany for determining and assessing child support.

It has been published by the Düsseldorf Higher Regional Court since 1979.

The Maintenance Commission of the German Family Court Day is also involved in its creation.

However, it does not have a legally binding effect.

Deductible also increases

The requirement rate for students who do not live with their parents or one of their parents climbs from 860 to 930 euros on January 1st.

This includes 410 euros in warm rent, as the OLG further announced.

The minimum requirement can deviate upwards under certain conditions.

The full amount of the child benefit is generally offset against the maintenance requirement for children of full age, and half for minors.

The deductibles, i.e. the minimum that must remain for those responsible for maintenance, will be increased in the new year: parents who are not employed are entitled to EUR 1,120 (EUR 160 more than before) and parents who are employed are entitled to EUR 1,370 (EUR 210 more).

The Düsseldorf table contains 15 income groups up to a net income of the person liable for maintenance of 11,000 euros.
