The Minnesota child support laws recommend the use of Varying Percentage of Income Formula on net income of parents for determining the child support liability.
- The amount to be paid by both the parents will vary based on the number of children.
- The financial resources and earning capacity of each parent will be taken into account for determining the amount.
- The primary health care, health insurance and education will also be added to basic support obligation if found necessary by the court.
- In case of unemployed parents, the court may draw up an estimate of potential income if such unemployment is proven to bogus.
