Are there more than three people in your household?
From and including the fourth person, we will deduct 20% of the subsistence rate for the youngest person in the household. 

Other rates we use in our case processing that will affect the calculation

  • Child benefit – The child benefit rate is NOK 1 766,- per month per child (ordinary rate) and it is included as part of your total income (you do not have to document this).
  • Child maintenance
    – Income – If you receive child maintenance payments from a parent who does not live with the child, or who has reduced access rights, this will be included in the calculation of your total income.
    – Expense – If you do not live with the child and pay child maintenance payments, this will be deemed to be an expense.

    Documentation of child maintenance?
    If it is handled through NAV, you do not need to document it. If the child maintenance payments are a private arrangement between the two of you, it must be documented.
  • Children’s pension – Is also included as part of your total income (you have to document this).
  • Access – If you do not live with your child but have access rights.
    Enclose the access agreement as documentation. Access is deducted as an expense at the rates stated below.

    Do you have more than two children? From and including the third child, we will deduct 20% of the access rate for the third child and for any other additional children.
    This only affects the calculation in relation to your dealings with us and has nothing to do with the child maintenance or access agreement.
