Indexation of maintenance for 2019 set at 2%


Based on Section 1:402a of the Dutch Civil Code, the amounts set for maintenance payments by a court decision or by means of an agreement are automatically adjusted by a certain percentage each year with effect from 1 January.

With effect from 1 January 2019, the maintenance amounts will be automatically increased by 2%, unless the statutory indexation is excluded by means of an agreement or by a court decision.

The Minister for Legal Protection, S. Dekker, announced this on 30 October 2018.

This is a Legal update by Anke Mulder.
