Child support: Program overviews

Child support is money parents pay to their child's other parent or caregiver to support their children. The Minnesota Department of Human Services’ Child Support Division and county child support agencies work with parents, employers, government agencies, other states and community partners to help children receive the financial, medical and child care support they deserve.

Together, partners play a pivotal role in Minnesota's child support efforts making valuable contributions to children. Cooperation between the department's partners and child support agencies encourages parents to actively participate in their cases resulting in help for families to provide for their children.

Community partners, employers, and hospital staff, review the Policies and procedures webpage for more information.
