Child Support in Minnesota. KIDS COUNT Minnesota, Fall 2000.
Children's Defense Fund-Minnesota, St. Paul.
Noting that the child support collection system is an important source of economic support for many Minnesota children and that child support contributes significantly to children's well-being beyond providing financial benefits, this special Kids Count report examines the child support system in Minnesota. The report provides information about how the system works, the family arrangements, the child support payment levels for Minnesota children, the economic impact of child support, the role of non-custodial fathers, and problems with unpaid support. Child support data are also presented on a county-by-county level, as are suggested ways to improve the child support system in Minnesota. Contains 15 endnotes. (KB)
