Child Support

Information on child support is available on the Minnesota Judicial Branch Self-Help Center. For a detailed description of the child support law, go to Minnesota's Child Support Laws: An Overview, written by the Minnesota House of Representatives.

Forms
Forms for child support are available on the Minnesota Judicial Branch website. District Court forms must be used if the county is not involved in your case. Expedited process (ex pro) forms are used only when County services are involved in your case.
