Maybe a silly question: Does the government in the US pay child support? In Germany we get 154.00 Euro per month...

Not sure exactly what you mean but...

in the US you get child support from the parent of the child. the government has nothing to do with it (except enforce the child support order).

if you get welfare or "live off the government" you get a certain amount more for each child you have. Your welfare money is dependent on family size and income of family.

I second what Faith said. "Child support" in US comes from the parents, not from the government. AFAIK the government will enforce "child support" if the parents are separated and it has to be determined by court. Not sure what kind of support that you are referring to in Germany. Does the government there support you if you have kids regardless your situation ?? That would be nice though... :P

I'm not sure if it's the same as in Germany but "child support" in Belgium was partially provided by the parents' employers and partially by the state (or country, whichever). In Belgium, each child up to 18 gets a monthly sum (or rather, the parents receive the money) and up to 25 years old, if you're still a student, you receive a reduced amount.

I only wish this was provided in the US. Bleh. Another reason to move back :(

As I said in Anja's other thread, it is a different story in the many countries that do provide some sort of "child benefit" from what the situation is in the States. Many, if not all, of those countries provided the benefit to counteract negative birth rates, a problem that the United States does not have.

I am in favor of most initiatives that would encourage parental and child health and well-being, but I expect that most Americans would be opposed to such a measure being enacted here. "Giving people money? Just for having babies?" I have to say, I don't think it's needed or expected here.

Here in the UK everyone with a child receives a monthly amount per child....I think it is something like 16 pounds for the first and 10 for subsequent children...payable to everyone regardless of income.

Well, in Germany, the parents get "child support" for every child from the government.

In the US, "child support" apparently means something totally different, it is alimony.

So unless you receive welfare, you won't get money from the state for having kids.

Unlike Germany, and many other European countries, where you get money for the kids

Canada has the Child Tax Benefit. It can be a good amount depending on your income.

Actual child support is from the parent (if they pay).

welshie... everyone gets this? even if the child's parents are married to each other? or is that only for single parents? i had never heard of this... here in the states, the child's absentee parent pays the child support... either through the courts, directly to the parent... or through the child support recovery agency (gov't agency).

Maybe a silly question: Does the government in the US pay child support? In Germany we get 154.00 Euro per month...

Anja... nope, not a silly question... very interesting i think!
