Eh, not exactly.

If you’re divorced, the parent with whom the children live receives maintenance payments from the other parent. The parents can agree upon the amount, or it’s fixed by the National Insurance office based on each parent’s ability to contribute. One spouse can also ask for maintenance from the other if their ability to work has been limited due to the marriage or child care. The usual time period is up to three years (or until the receiver remarries), but can be longer. Child maintenance continues until the kids grow up.

Children receive a benefit from the state regardless that continues until they are an adult. It’s to help the parents with extra costs incurred from having kids. This continues if the parents are divorced, which may be what you’ve heard about.

As for the other question, there is a minimum that you receive per month from work or social services. This is usually rent/utilites plus about 5000 NOK for a single person. If you don’t meet that through employment, you can apply for welfare benefit to cover basic costs, taking assets and savings into consideration. You can also receive unemployment for a time period while you seek work. If your job is only a few months a year, you’re expected to have other work or means to support yourself the rest of the time though. Other jobs are paid in such a way that the salary is split to cover the absent months/weeks.

These benefits don’t automatically apply to non-Norwegians. Immigrants usually have to live and work here for a few years before they become eligible.
