What Is Child Support?

In Minnesota, child support guidelines include three components of support:

  • Basic support: The income of both parents and the number of children being supported are used to calculate basic child support obligations. Once the basic support is calculated, additional deductions for visitation/parenting time, child care and health care coverage are made.
  • Child care support: Minnesota's child support laws attempt to divide child care costs between parents by including a child care support provision within the child support guidelines.
  • Medical support: The court will determine which parent should carry health care coverage for the child. If necessary, adjustments can be made to child support obligations to reflect medical support.

It is understandable that the amount of child support may need to be revisited as jobs and incomes change and as changes are made to parenting schedules. We assist clients with these modifications of child support orders as well as enforcement actions.

Your child custody and visitation arrangement will have an impact on your child support order. Specifically, the number of overnights you have with your children and the overall percentage of parenting time will be factors.
