Many parents in Minnesota understand the importance of child support to a custodial parent. Child support allows the custodial parent to provide his or her children with basic necessities. This can include anything from food, clothing and shelter to education and medical expenses. Unfortunately, sometimes a noncustodial parent fails to live up to his or her end of a child support order. Paying child support, however, is not an option.
Counties around the state of Minnesota collected $582.9 million for back child support in 2011. One particular county in Minnesota collected more than $3,000 per case in both 2011 and 2012. The average collected per case is $2,397.
