The Factors That Affect Child Support

Child support is established using a mathematical formula created by the Minnesota Legislature. The formula is computerized; various numbers are plugged into the program, and a number is determined that considers all of the relevant factors.

Some of these factors include:

  • The earnings of each parent
  • Any special needs of the child
  • Child care costs necessary for a parent to work
  • The amount of time each parent has the child in their care

This issue is largely factual in nature, and the amount paid or received is established by a set formula.

I am founder and family law attorney Diane Kaer of Kaer Law, P.C. For over 35 years, I have helped parents understand their rights and responsibilities when it comes to Minnesota child support, including enforcement and modification. I give you the child support information and guidance you need. I also offer representation for single issues.

Child support is typically ordered during a child custody proceeding. Changes in the level of income or employment status may affect the originally determined level of support.
