Child Support Lawyers
Typically, child support is set by the court. The parent who has primary physical custody of the child, meaning “the parent who provides the primary residence for a child and is responsible for the majority of day-to-day decisions concerning a child” (Minnesota Statute 518A.26, subd. 17), is generally the parent to whom support is paid.
In some family circumstances, child support may be allotted to others who have custody, such as grandparents, aunts or uncles. Whatever your unique family configuration, you deserve clear information and guidance as you seek child support or seek protection when you are asked to pay child support.
