Child Support Services

Every child needs financial and emotional support from both parents. Child support includes basic support, medical support, and childcare support. A court order can require one or both parents to provide child support for his or her child(ren). The State of Minnesota and Pine County child support offices work with both parents to help children receive the child support they deserve.

Pine County Child Support Staff have been able to process over four million dollars in Child Support payments annually.
