Although her ex-husband works in Denmark the woman has never lived there, and her children have grown up in Sweden. According to EU regulations dating back to the 1970s, benefits should not be linked to wherever you hold your citizenship, but to the country where you are registered as a full time employee.
If only one of the parents is working the benefit should be collected from the country where that parent is employed, explained SVD.
