Minneapolis Child Support Modification Attorneys
Knowledgeable Assistance with the Details of Your Divorce
In Minnesota, children are eligible to receive
support until they are 18 or until they graduate from high school — whichever
comes later (but under age 20). There are exceptions if children are incapable
of self-support by reason of physical or mental condition. Both parents
have an obligation to contribute to the support of their children if they
are able. The result? Many parents end up paying or receiving child support
for many years.
Over time, financial situations change. Parents get promoted to higher
paying jobs, take pay cuts, or lose their jobs. Health care situations
change as well. The costs of insurance change, and it costs more or less
to insure a child. The law might change too. For example, on August 1,
2018, the parenting time adjustment changed, which resulted in many cases
qualifying for modification. These changes can all impact the amount of
support calculated by the Minnesota child support guidelines.
If you have experienced a change of circumstances that may affect the amount
of child support you pay or receive, the attorneys at Mack & Santana
Law Offices, P.C. can help. Our Twin Cities area law firm is dedicated
to helping families achieve favorable results in family law matters. We
take strategic and swift action to protect our clients’ interests
when a child support modification is necessary.
If a change happens that you believe may impact the amount of child support
you pay and/or receive, it is critical to talk with us immediately. Under
the law, with rare exception, you cannot make the change happen any earlier
than when you file and serve a motion to modify, as the court order changing
the support can go back to that day. Therefore, it is important to file
and serve a motion as early as you can even if you lack complete information
at that time. Also, you are required to follow the court order until it
is changed. Our law firm can take quick and effective action to modify
your child support payments.
