Understanding How Daycare Payments Affect Child Support

When calculating child support, it is important to look beyond a child’s basic needs. Beyond expenses like food, shelter and clothing, the state of Minnesota considers health care and day care expenses.

If you have questions about the child support determination process, put your trust in Dwire Law Offices in Lakeville, Minnesota, for guidance. Our attorney and legal team help parents throughout the Apple Valley, Burnsville, Eagan, Lakeville, Prior Lake, Savage and Shakopee areas get the practical legal advice they need to protect their rights and interests.

Factoring Day Care Into Child Support Is Complex

In most cases, one parent will not have to pay 100 percent of a child’s day care expenses. It is usually determined proportionally depending on both parents’ income. Other factors, such as parenting time, may also be taken into account. There are also important tax implications regarding which parent pays what for day care expenses. We can provide clarity on these issues.

While the state of Minnesota offers an online calculator for help determining child support, it is important to work with an attorney. With more than 22 years of experience, Todd Dwire knows how the area courts operate, and he can give you sound advice on what your options and possible outcomes are.
