When a marriage is dissolved and children are involved, child support becomes an important issue. Both parents need to support their children and ensure that their needs are met. Maintaining the stability and constancy of a child’s life is important. Common concerns frequently involve child care, health care costs, school tuition, programs, sports and other activities.
Minnesota uses a support calculator which takes the incomes of both parties into account in all cases. Incomes are compared with the allocation of parenting time, along with the input of various expenses for child care and health care. Child support is reviewed occasionally for cost of living adjustments, and may be modified under certain circumstances.
