Effective January 1, 2023, Minnesota’s Child Support Guidelines will be changing. Updates include changes to the basic child support table calculations, updates to the Self-Support Reserve, updates to how non-joint children affect calculations, elimination of interest on child support arrears effective 08/01/2022, and changes to requirements for child support arrears to be reported to credit reporting agencies.
Once these new laws are placed into effect on January 1, 2023, your child support order will not be automatically reviewed. You must serve and file a motion to modify child support or, if you have an open IV-D child support case, you may ask the county to review your child support case.
Your child support obligation may be modified based on this change in law, not needing any additional substantial change in circumstances. Contact our office to schedule a consultation to discuss your options and what the changes to the Minnesota child support rules mean for you.
