Edina fathers’ rights have improved significantly over the last decade. Minnesota was formerly one of the harshest states on non-custodial parents – which are fathers about 83% of the time – by completely disregarding the custodial parent’s income when determining support. Mercifully, the state has adopted new child support guidelines that takes into account both parents’ income.
This is not to say that Edina fathers’ rights are protected because even the new guidelines tend to be unfairly biased. If a non-custodial parent has less than 45.1% of parenting time, which is often the case, then they are only eligible for a 12% adjustment in their child support. That means fathers with joint custody are within a danger zone where child support payments could be unfairly determined.
