Minneapolis Child Support Attorneys

Separated and divorced parents have a legal obligation to support their children financially. In Minnesota, there are a number of different factors used to determine guideline child support, including the gross incomes of the parents, the allocation of parenting time, the cost of health and dental insurance for the children, and the cost of childcare. In rare cases, the court may also consider the unique circumstances of your family in deviating (either upwards or downwards) from the guideline child support amount.

At Robinson | Duffy, PLLC, our attorneys will work with you to answer your questions regarding child support and explore options for ensuring your children are being taken care of financially. Common questions include:

  • Will my overtime or bonuses be included to determine my gross income?
  • What if my co-parent is self-employed?
  • How is the amount of parenting time calculated?
  • What if I cannot afford to pay guideline child support?
  • What if my child receives derivative social security benefits?
  • When will my child support obligation end?
  • What if I lose my job?
  • What expenses am I responsible for paying with my child support?
  • My child plays hockey, who pays for that?

Thoughts from a Client …

"Jill worked very hard for me during all phases of my divorce and when issues arose a few years later regarding child support. She ensured that I understood every that we needed to take to make it beneficial for both my ex and me. I have absolute trust in Jill to represent and work toward the best interests of not only me but also my son. In the end, we were able to find resolution without complications because she was able to balance all of the pieces flawlessly and with the overall mission of ensuring our child was the priority."
