Many factors affect the child maintenance amount in Singapore.
(a) the financial needs of the child;
(b) the income, earning capacity (if any), property and other financial resources of the child;
(c) any physical or mental disability of the child; and…
(d) the standard of living enjoyed by the child before a parent neglected or refused to provide reasonable maintenance for the child.
We have prepared a Child Maintenance Calculator to provide you with an gauge of how much child maintenance is payable, taking into account only the parents’ earnings and child’s expenses.
*** It is important to note that the Court takes into account more factors than just the earnings of the parents and the child’s expenses. The calculator is purely for illustrative purposes, and does not in any way represent the amount that the Court will award.
