Child support: Policies and procedures

Child support in Minnesota is county-administered and state-supervised. The Minnesota Department of Human Services' Child Support Division establishes policy, maintains a statewide computer system, disburses child support to families, monitors program performance and supervises the child support program.

County agencies administer the program, provide services and manage cases by working with parents to establish and enforce child support orders.
