Child support hits unemployed noncustodial parents hard

Like elsewhere in the country, family court judges in Minnesota must make tough decisions when a couple divorces or a nontraditional family separates with one parent taking the couple's children and the other ordered to pay financial support. All of these decisions are made with the best interests of the child in mind. When it comes to setting the amount of child support, factors such as the child's daily living expenses as well as education and medical needs are used to calculate the amount of support to be paid.

Obtaining an annulment under Minnesota laws

An annulment is a kind of legal dissolution of a marriage which, much like a divorce proceeding, essentially ends the marital union between two parties by declaring the marriage never took place. In Minnesota, annulling a marriage is the same as voiding a marriage. Couples who choose to annul their marriages essentially declare that the marriages never existed.

How is Minnesota child support determined?

Determining who is financially responsible for a minor child is a decision made by a Minnesota family court judge in many types of proceedings, including divorces, child-custody hearings, paternity lawsuits and even temporary protection order cases where domestic abuse is an issue. In some cases, a judge may require temporary child support, while a case is ongoing and the minor child lives with his or her primary custodian.
