FAMILY LAW

CHILD SUPPORT

Child support may be ordered by the court in custody, parenting time, and paternity matters involving minor children. Child support is intended to assist the parents with the basic living expenses, work-related childcare, and medical expenses of the children.

In Minnesota, Child Support is determined by a formula calculated by Minnesota Child Support Guidelines. The formula considers several factors when determining the amount of child support, including the number of children, gross incomes of each parent, childcare and health care costs and the regular overnight parenting time schedule for the parents. Based upon the circumstances of each family, a court can order a deviation from the formulated child support amount.

Baker Vicchiollo Law attorneys have experience working with clients on both sides of this issue: enforcement of court-ordered child support and modifications of child support when employment earnings, or other financial or childcare factors, of one parent has changed.

CHILD SUPPORT MODIFICATION

Child support can be modified when the existing obligation becomes unreasonable or unfair, according to Minnesota Statute § 518A.39 subd. 2(a).

During the initial consultation, the attorney will explain the factors for demonstrating how the current support obligation is unreasonable or unfair.  This information will help you decide whether or not you want to move forward.
