Child support

Every child needs financial and emotional support and every child has the right to support from both parents. Minnesota's child support program benefits children by enforcing parental responsibility for their support.

Important notice: 
Congress did not exempt federal stimulus payments made under the coronavirus relief package from going towards past-due child support. So if parents owe past-due support, the federal government may send their stimulus payment to the child support agencies in charge of their cases to pay their past-due support. Frequently asked questions about how federal stimulus payments will be handled for parents who owe past-due child support are available online.
