Minnesota Child Support Lawyer
Obtaining and enforcing fair support payments in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area
The government and family courts do their best to make child support determinations straightforward. Support is supposed to be based on state guidelines that account for parents’ income, overnights and extraordinary expenses. Unfortunately, the decision is rarely clear-cut.
Child support attorney Jodi See has seen parents — those paying support — employ questionable tactics to reduce their child support burden. Sometimes money just disappears, or parents use closely-held businesses, family and friends to hide their money to avoid paying their fair share. They also become voluntarily unemployed or underemployed or they maximize their own overnight time so that the child is with the custodial parent was to avoid paying support.
On the other hand, custodial parents sometimes resort to similar subterfuge, requiring the non-custodial parent to challenge a support award or increase.
