We could help you receive adequate support for your child

In the event of a divorce, one of the most important aspects that must be considered is the well-being of the couple's children. The financial security of each spouse helps immensely in ensuring their child leads a healthy and successful life. In many cases, one spouse will need the financial assistance of the other in order to provide sufficient care for their children in the form of child support.

While child support calculation in Minnesota includes things such as monthly income, child care costs and the amount of time the child resides with you, there are other elements that come into play. In general, everything that affects his or her gross income is included in the calculation for child support for a spouse. For example, the benefits for the child from Social Security of veterans' benefits, while not strictly defined as income, are included in the calculation of child support.

Additionally, child support is not fixed. If circumstances change, it is possible to get a modification on the amount of support that is received. Changes originating from the parents' circumstances, such as income, as well as changes from the child, such as a serious illness, are grounds to get the amount of child support recalculated.

Maintaining a child's health, well-being and overall happiness is paramount. While these things could be provided regardless of the income of the parent to an extent, having the necessary financial support to perform these duties as a parent makes achieving them much easier. If you feel you could benefit from receiving child support from your spouse or changing the amount of support you receive, it may be helpful to consult an attorney to explore options for you and your children.
