Saint Paul Child Support Lawyers


Both parents share an equal responsibility for the care and well-being of their children. When parents divorce, the court issues orders in an effort to ensure that both spouses continue to provide an appropriate level of financial support to accommodate the children's needs.

Working to Secure the Appropriate Level of Support for Your Children

In Minnesota, the income levels of both parents, along with statutory guidelines for child support, are used to determine the appropriate level of support to be provided by each parent. While calculating the actual child support amount is usually a fairly straightforward process, it is important to have an experienced Saint Paul child support attorney make sure the correct figures are used and an accurate result is obtained. Contact the attorneys at Askvig & Johnson, PLLP, to learn how we can protect your best interests during an initial consultation in Saint Paul, Minnesota.

Ramsey County Child Support Enforcement Attorneys Working for You

At the law firm of Askvig & Johnson, PLLP, we have successfully represented clients in all areas of child support. Beyond helping our clients secure accurate orders, we also advocate for deviations in the guidelines when special circumstances exist. In addition, we provide strong representation for clients needing to have a child support order enforced when the other parent fails to make the required payments.

Experienced in Handling Child Support Modifications

We also represent clients wishing to modify a child support order. When a child support order is established, it is based on the circumstances that existed at the time of the divorce. If circumstances change for either parent, a modification may be in order. The emancipation of a child, a significant change in the income or needs of the child or either spouse, substantial medical expenses of the child and other factors can all serve as grounds for a modification request.
