Home > Maintenance



The Czech Republic is a member state of the European Union and a party to many international treaties regulating rules and options of international recovery of maintenance. In this section, you will find information on legal prerequisites and limitations for the maintenance recovery as well as information on the manner in which the international recovery proceeds.

So as to assess the options of maintenance recovery from abroad it is essential to answer the following questions:

  • Is the person you wish to recover maintenance from entered in the child’s birth certificate?
  • Is there a court decision which imposes the other person to pay the maintenance to you in a specific amount?
  • Do you know the debtor’s address abroad?
  • Do you have information about the debtor’s property and income?
  • Is there a debt with respect to the maintenance?

If you answered YES to all the questions, send the documents establishing the maintenance amount to the Office (uncertified copy) along with the petition for the maintenance recovery from abroad and description of the situation. You can find the template here.

If you answered NO to any of the questions, contact the Office so as to ascertain if and in what manner it is possible to resolve the situation.

Please pay attention to the information on prerequisites and limitations of the maintenance recovery from abroad.
