Document Can I claim Child Dependants Allowance for children who do not live with me?

If your child lives with an ex-partner/spouse you can apply for Child Dependants Allowance (CDA) if shared parental care applies.
 
You must have actual care of the child and parental responsibility on a regular basis, even if this is only weekly or fortnightly. You are not entitled to CDA solely on the basis that you are making maintenance payments.
