Do You Pay Child Maintenance If Child On Apprenticeship

Legally, you are no longer compelled to pay child maintenance once your kid completes full-time education. Apprenticeships are not the same as full-time studies, such as A levels.

Do you pay child maintenance if child on apprenticeship?

If a kid enters paid work for 24 hours or more per week and is no longer enrolled in authorised education or training, enters an apprenticeship, or starts receiving certain benefits in their own right, such as Income Support, the benefit is ended.

Child benefits, tax credits, and other types of assistance would be discontinued the day before they started their apprenticeship/job.
