Child Support In South Dakota

In South Dakota, child support is calculated by a mathematical formula. If one parent is granted child custody, then typically the other parent will have child support payments. Determining child support can be complex, especially if one parent is self-employed or both parents are wage earners. Because this process is complex, it is important you work with a lawyer who is experienced and knowledgeable of law.

If your family's needs change after time, you may be able to make child support modifications. Circumstances that may constitute a child support modification can include:

  • If one parent is promoted
  • If one parent loses a job
  • When the child's needs drastically change — due to medical or other special circumstances
  • As day care or health care costs change
  • When one parent relocates
