Child Support Overview
There are a number of factors to consider when a parent is looking to establish the proper child support for their children. We have the experience and means to successfully handle all types of child support cases. Child support is not limited to parents. Grandparents and people who have third party custody of a child also have the right to child support. The amount of child support to paid to the appropriate party in the State of Minnesota is calculated on the “Income Shares” method. This method takes into account the gross income, number of children and the cost of raising a child at various income levels to determine the proper level of support. In addition, guardians are entitled to some level of support for:
- basic support – food, clothing, shelter, etc.
- child care support – daycare and other care expenses
- medical support – health and dental insurance and other expenses for the child
Child Support Considerations
Parenting time is a large factor in the determination of child support. Child support can be adjusted a substantial percentage in relation to the amount of parenting time the child spends with the supporter. Child support laws also factor the potential income of the parents of the child. If there is failure of a parent to supply their annual income- the courts can decide on the amount to be paid based upon other evidence available to them.
