Child Support

Parents have the responsibility to provide for their children and the court ensures this responsibility is met by establishing child support obligations. Child support is established in divorce, legal separation and paternity cases.

Under Minnesota law, child support is based on the income of both parents (“parental income for child support” or “PICS”) and the percentage of parenting time, as well as which parent is incurring the cost of the child’s health and dental care and child care. The custody labels are irrelevant in determining child support.

To get an idea of what the court may order, look at the child support calculator from the Department of Human Services.
