When parents get divorced or separate, there are often legal issues surrounding their children. If Minnesota parents are no longer living together or raising their children together, they will have to devise some sort of parenting agreement to decide where the children live, spend their time and who pays for the children's everyday expenses.
Our society and family court system accepts that parents owe a duty to pay the cost of living and everyday expenses of their minor children. Sometimes genetic testing is necessary to determine the paternity of the child, and with it the obligation to pay support. But one Minnesota man recently found himself obligated to pay child support even though a paternity test showed he was not the father.
