Contact your local CAF (Caisse d'Allocations Familiales) armed with all info re your income and kids. They will advise.

If you think they're advising wrongly, contact your local Assistant(s) Social(e), who will work things out for you. They're normally available either via your kids' school or at a Centre Medico-Social.

Child Benefit here isn't an absolute amount as it is in the UK. It all depends upon your personal circumstances (ie your income, their ages, whether they're semi-orphaned, etc etc)

Hope this helps.

I have a link to a site that is in many languages, but I can't post it since I don't have enough posts. So I 'll reply again.

It still won't let me paste the link. So add the "www" and take out the spaces:

There are also payments during pregnancy/having a child. From what I've gathered, the child benefit is greater in the UK for 1 or 2 children (there's no benefit in France for one child), but it's better in France for 3 or more children.
