Can the father or co-mother get paternity allowance without affecting the maternity allowance of the mother?

Yes. The father's or co-mother's paternity allowance does not affect the mother's maternity allowance unless he or she takes over her leave.

The paternity allowance is based on the father's or co-mother's monthly average A-income over the last 12 months before the paternity leave.
