Family allowance French or Swiss?

I have been dealing with the french CAF in setting up my family allowance as a single parent for the past year now. Originally I lived on the west coast of france and was advised that i would receive money for my situation being a single parent and some help to accommodation in addition to my salary. Now that my situation has changed and I have moved to Alsace and work in Basel, my salary has increased considerably. I have submitted every piece of financial information again and again, but still receive nothing from the French, although they tell me I am entitled etc. They always need one more piece of paperwork blah blah. In the long run I hope that I would be better off with the French system, but am getting a bit fed up of the delay....Grrrr.

I am entitled to also claim the Swiss child benefit, if I cancel the French one of course, because I work in Switzerland. I have one child age 3.5. How much is the Swiss one, are there any additional payments for single parents? Is it quick to set up?

Of the top of my head, it's about 200CHF per kid, in Basel.
