Senate Approves Child Support Recalculations - Minnesota

WCCO: Senate Approves Child Support Recalculations

St. Paul (AP) The Senate has approved a major reform to the way child support payments are calculated.

The new system would base levels on the incomes of both parents instead of just the noncustodial parent.

Senate members voted 60-to-2 in favor of the measure, saying it more closely reflects the financial realities faced by most families.

The bill would give noncustodial parents a financial break on child support for spending significant amounts of time with their children. It also would reduce child support for noncustodial parents who have more children after their divorce or separation.

A companion bill has been moving through the House.
