The Legal Team You Need Right Now

Securing A Fair Child Support Arrangement

When emotions flare in a divorce, a spouse may try to weaponize child support negotiations as a way to punish their spouse, either by denying them the resources they need to provide for their children or by making them pay more than they can manage. Instead of allowing a child support resolution to threaten the well-being of yourself or your children, let a skilled Minnesota lawyer help you earn an outcome everyone can benefit from.

At Frieders & Kuhn, L.L.P., our law firm has been the legal guidance that Rochester families have been able to turn to since 1933. Our decades of experience act as an invaluable aid in the development of negotiating through divorce and developing a strong case for litigation as well. When a judge needs to determine your child support, we are prepared to do everything we can to obtain favorable results.

How Is Child Support Calculated In Minnesota?

While every divorce is unique, some elements of divorce are consistent, including the formula used to determine child support. When a judge determines how much child support will be in your divorce, they will first consider several factors, including:

  • The income of each parent combined
  • The monthly income of the person paying the child support
  • The time the children spend living with each parent
  • The cost of health insurance
  • The cost of childcare

There are also minimums and maximums for how much a parent will pay.

When we represent you through your divorce, we will take the time to gather the accurate information a judge needs to come to an informed and accurate decision for your child support. Whether you will be paying or receiving support, you can rest easy knowing that someone you can count on is fighting for a fair amount.
