Child Support

Child Support Attorney In St. Paul

When parents are going through a divorce or if they separate, the court will establish child support according to Minnesota's child support guidelines. The child support guidelines are based on a strict formula, but the court has the authority to depart from the payment guidelines as they see fit. Because of this, it is absolutely critical that you have an experienced child support attorney representing you through this process. Hiring the right attorney will ensure that your child support order is accurately addressing your family’s financial situation. 

How Is Child Support Calculated In Minnesota?

The parent that currently has the child residing with them will receive child support from the other parent according to the guidelines set by the state of Minnesota. These guidelines take into consideration the parents’ respective incomes. If the child is splitting time in an even way with both parents, then the child support tends to be a lower amount.

The Department of Human Services for the state of Minnesota has a child support calculator that factors in the Minnesota guidelines for child support. To get an idea of what your child support payments may be, you can fill out all of the information on their calculator.
