Can we keep maintenace support (underhållsstöd) if I adopt my partners children?

Child support when adopting (Original title)

I´m getting married soon and at the same time plan to adopt my fiancés two boys.
right now försäkringskassan is paying underhåll because their bioglogical father has disappeared. Will försäkringskassan stop paying if I adopt the boys, or is the father still obliged to support and by that försäkringskassan will continue the monthly payout?


  • Hello,

    Thank you for your post.

    Maintenance Support (Underhållsstöd) will be stopped as soon as Försäkringskassan receives an impuls that you are the new legal guardian (vårdnadshavare) of the children.

    You should notify Försäkringskassan about the adoption as soon as it's approved to avoid any debts because from the month the adoption goes trough there is no more right to Maintenance Support from Försäkringskassan.

    Best Regards,
    Barbara Administrative officer
