The calculator is intended to be used to estimate the amount of child support that the court may order on a case. This calculator is for informational and educational use only and is not a substitute for the child support guidelines.  Click here to proceed to the guidelines.


    What happens when the kids grow up?

    Minnesota's Child Support Laws: an Overview  from the House of Representatives Research Department, has a section on when a child support order ends. See page 16. The Self-Help Center has a page on Changing an Order When a Child Turns 18 and Has Left High School.

      You can get more help with legal research at law libraries in Minnesota. Talk to a lawyer to learn how the law and rules may affect your case.



        In our positions as librarians, not lawyers, we can suggest resources but cannot give legal advice (such as which form to file) or legal opinions (such as how a statute might apply to particular facts). To do so could be considered the unauthorized practice of law. Even though we try to suggest materials that will be of help, more research is often required to find a complete and correct answer. For many questions, the best answer may be to consult an attorney.
