Why is alimony indexation necessary?

Every year, the cost of living increases according to the price index. Logically, a more expensive ‘life’ must also be taken into account for the maintenance contribution for children and/or ex-partners.

This applies to both the amounts determined by a judge and those agreed upon between you and your ex-partner.

When should alimony indexation be done?

The amount must be indexed every year on the 1st day of the month in which you first made a contribution.

For example, if the first payment took place on September 5 in year X, it must be indexed every year from September 1.

Who is responsible for indexation?

The responsibility to monitor and implement this lies with you. Anyone with a court order or agreement specifying the amount must index it themselves.
