Child Support in South Dakota
Typically, non-custodial parents are responsible for making child support payments. These payments are to ensure that the child’s needs are met by both parents and not just by the parent with whom the child mainly resides. Child support payments must continue until the child turns 18 or graduates from high school.
Child support payments are calculated according to state guidelines. Generally, these payments are based on income and the amount of time spent with the child. Medical costs for the child will also affect the amount ordered. Courts can adjust the amount higher or lower depending on what is determined to be needed.
The income that is reviewed for the purposes of child support payments includes:
- Capital gains
- Business profits or losses
Before a child support order is finalized by the court, you can ask for the amount to be adjusted by presenting evidence to the court justifying your request. After it has been finalized, you may ask to modify the amount if you can provide proof of a substantial change in circumstances. Ver Beek Law, Prof. L.L.C. can assist you with any needs you have concerning arranging, enforcing, challenging, or modifying your child support order.
