Child Support - Job Loss and Child Support
What you need to know
Contact your Child Support Agency
To report a change in income or for information on your case, contact the Child Support Officer assigned to your case.
You can get your county child support officers phone number and address by signing in to either Minnesota Child Support Online or the Child Support Information Line. Or you can look up the county child support phone numbers and addresses.
Your court order continues after a job loss
The child support charging does not automatically stop when the source of income ends. You must modify your child support order if you wish to reduce the charging amount. It takes a new court order to change the existing court order.
Receiving unemployment benefits
Your next child support payment may be due before you get your first unemployment check. If your employer withheld payments from your paycheck, Department of Economic and Employment Development (DEED) may withhold child support payments from your unemployment insurance checks.
