Child support is paid by a parent to help financially support a minor child(ren). Under Minnesota Law, child support is broken down to mainly three different subcategories.
Basic support is meant to provide financial assistance for the necessities in life like clothing, food, housing and transportation. This amount is often the highest amount within a total child support order as it covers the most expenses.
Medical support is the amount that is paid to pay your respective portion of health and dental premiums for the minor child only. Medical support also has a sub-category that will cover the percentage that you will need to pay for unreimbursed/uninsured medical expenses for the minor child like co-pays and deductibles.
Child care support is the amount that is paid to pay your respective portion of the child care costs for your minor child.
These three categories are added together to create your total child support obligation.
