Reported the same back with the following amendments:

"ARTICLE 1

CHILD SUPPORT INCOME PROVISIONS, GUIDELINES,

CHILD CARE COSTS, AND ARREARS

 

Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 2020, section 518A.29, is amended to read:

 

518A.29 CALCULATION OF GROSS INCOME.

 

(a) Subject to the exclusions and deductions in this section, gross income includes any form of periodic payment to an individual, including, but not limited to, salaries, wages, commissions, self-employment income under section 518A.30, workers' compensation, unemployment benefits, annuity payments, military and naval retirement, pension and disability payments, spousal maintenance received under a previous order or the current proceeding, Social Security or veterans benefits provided for a joint child under section 518A.31, and potential income under section 518A.32.  Salaries, wages, commissions, or other compensation paid by third parties shall be based upon gross income before participation in an employer-sponsored benefit plan that allows an employee to pay for a benefit or expense using pretax dollars, such as flexible spending plans and health savings accounts.  No deductions shall be allowed for contributions to pensions, 401-K, IRA, or other retirement benefits.

 

(b) Gross income does not include compensation received by a party for employment in excess of a 40-hour work week, provided that:

 

(1) child support is ordered in an amount at least equal to the guideline amount based on gross income not excluded under this clause; and

 

(2) the party demonstrates, and the court finds, that:

 

(i) the excess employment began after the filing of the petition for dissolution or legal separation or a petition related to custody, parenting time, or support;

 

(ii) the excess employment reflects an increase in the work schedule or hours worked over that of the two years immediately preceding the filing of the petition;

 

(iii) the excess employment is voluntary and not a condition of employment;

 

(iv) the excess employment is in the nature of additional, part-time or overtime employment compensable by the hour or fraction of an hour; and

 

(v) the party's compensation structure has not been changed for the purpose of affecting a support or maintenance obligation.

 

(c) Expense reimbursements or in-kind payments received by a parent in the course of employment, self‑employment, or operation of a business shall be counted as income if they reduce personal living expenses.


Journal of the House - 19th Day - Monday, March 1, 2021 - Top of Page 666

(d) Gross income may be calculated on either an annual or monthly basis.  Weekly income shall be translated to monthly income by multiplying the weekly income by 4.33.

 

(e) Gross income does not include a child support payment received by a party.  It is a rebuttable presumption that adoption assistance payments, Northstar kinship assistance payments, and foster care subsidies are not gross income.

 

(f) Gross income does not include the income of the obligor's spouse and the obligee's spouse.

 

(g) Child support or Spousal maintenance payments ordered by a court for a nonjoint child or former spouse or ordered payable to the other party as part of the current proceeding are deducted from other periodic payments received by a party for purposes of determining gross income.

 

(h) Gross income does not include public assistance benefits received under section 256.741 or other forms of public assistance based on need.

 

Sec. 2.  Minnesota Statutes 2020, section 518A.33, is amended to read:

 

518A.33 DEDUCTION FROM INCOME FOR NONJOINT CHILDREN.

 

(a) When either or both parents are legally responsible for a nonjoint child, a deduction for this obligation shall be calculated under this section if:.

 

(1) the nonjoint child primarily resides in the parent's household; and

 

(2) the parent is not obligated to pay basic child support for the nonjoint child to the other parent or a legal custodian of the child under an existing child support order.

 

(b) The court shall use the guidelines under section 518A.35 to determine the basic child support obligation for the nonjoint child or children by using the gross income of the parent for whom the deduction is being calculated and the number of nonjoint children primarily residing in the parent's household.  If the number of nonjoint children to be used for the determination is greater than two, the determination must be made using the number two instead of the greater number.  Court-ordered child support for a nonjoint child shall be deducted from the payor's gross income.

 

(c) The deduction for nonjoint children is 50 percent of the guideline amount determined under paragraph (b).  When a parent is legally responsible for a nonjoint child and the parent is not obligated to pay basic child support for the nonjoint child to the other parent or a legal custodian under an existing child support order, a deduction shall be calculated.  The court shall use the basic support guideline table under section 518A.35 to determine this deduction by using the gross income of the parent for whom the deduction is being calculated, minus any deduction under paragraph (b) and the number of eligible nonjoint children, up to six children.  The deduction for nonjoint children is 75 percent of the guideline amount determined under this paragraph.

 

Sec. 3.  Minnesota Statutes 2020, section 518A.35, subdivision 1, is amended to read:

 

Subdivision 1.  Determination of support obligation.  (a) The guideline in this section is a rebuttable presumption and shall be used in any judicial or administrative proceeding to establish or modify a support obligation under this chapter.

 

(b) The basic child support obligation shall be determined by referencing the guideline for the appropriate number of joint children and the combined parental income for determining child support of the parents.


Journal of the House - 19th Day - Monday, March 1, 2021 - Top of Page 667

(c) If a child is not in the custody of either parent and a support order is sought against one or both parents, the basic child support obligation shall be determined by referencing the guideline for the appropriate number of joint children, and the parent's individual parental income for determining child support, not the combined parental incomes for determining child support of the parents.  Unless a parent has court-ordered parenting time, the parenting expense adjustment formula under section 518A.34 must not be applied.

 

(d) If a child is in custody of either parent not residing with the parent that has court-ordered or statutory custody and a support order is sought by the public authority under section 256.87 against one or both parents, unless the parent against whom the support order is sought has court-ordered parenting time, the basic support obligation must be determined by referencing the guideline for the appropriate number of joint children and the parent's individual income without application of the parenting expense adjustment formula under section 518A.34.

 

(e) For combined parental incomes for determining child support exceeding $15,000 $20,000 per month, the presumed basic child support obligations shall be as for parents with combined parental income for determining child support of $15,000 $20,000 per month.  A basic child support obligation in excess of this level may be demonstrated for those reasons set forth in section 518A.43.

 

Sec. 4.  Minnesota Statutes 2020, section 518A.35, subdivision 2, is amended to read:

 

Subd. 2.  Basic support; guideline.  Unless otherwise agreed to by the parents and approved by the court, when establishing basic support, the court must order that basic support be divided between the parents based on their proportionate share of the parents' combined monthly parental income for determining child support (PICS).  Basic support must be computed using the following guideline:

EFFECTIVE DATE.  This section is effective August 31, 2022.

 

Sec. 5.  Minnesota Statutes 2020, section 518A.39, subdivision 7, is amended to read:

 

Subd. 7.  Child care exception.  Child care support must be based on the actual child care expenses.  The court may provide that a decrease in the amount of the child care based on a decrease in the actual child care expenses is effective as of the date the expense is decreased.  Under section 518A.40, subdivision 4, paragraph (d), a decrease in the amount of child care support shall be effective as of the date the expenses terminated unless otherwise found by the court.

 

Sec. 6.  Minnesota Statutes 2020, section 518A.40, is amended by adding a subdivision to read:

 

Subd. 3a.  Child care cost information.  (a) Upon the request of the obligor when child care support is ordered to be paid, unless there is a protective or restraining order issued by the court regarding one of the parties or on behalf of a joint child, or the obligee is a participant in the Safe at Home program:

 

(1) the obligee must give the child care provider the name and address of the obligor and must give the obligor the name, address, and telephone number of the child care provider;

 

(2) by February 1 of each year, the obligee must provide the obligor with verification from the child care provider that indicates the total child care expenses paid for the previous year; and

 

(3) when there is a change in the child care provider, the type of child care provider, or the age group of the child, the obligee must provide updated information to the obligor.  If the obligee fails to provide the annual verification from the provider or updated information, the obligor may request the verification from the provider.

 

(b) When the obligee is no longer incurring child care expenses, the obligee must notify the obligor, and the public authority if it provides child support services, that the child care expenses ended and on which date.  If the public authority is providing services, the public authority must follow the procedure outlined in subdivision 4.


Journal of the House - 19th Day - Monday, March 1, 2021 - Top of Page 672

Sec. 7.  Minnesota Statutes 2020, section 518A.40, subdivision 4, is amended to read:

 

Subd. 4.  Change in child care.  (a) When a court order provides for child care expenses, and child care support is not assigned under section 256.741, the public authority, if the public authority provides child support enforcement services, may suspend collecting the amount allocated for child care expenses when either party informs the public authority that no child care costs expenses are being incurred and:

 

(1) the public authority verifies the accuracy of the information with the obligee; or

 

(2) the obligee fails to respond within 30 days of the date of a written request from the public authority for information regarding child care costs.  A written or oral response from the obligee that child care costs are being incurred is sufficient for the public authority to continue collecting child care expenses.

 

The suspension is effective as of the first day of the month following the date that the public authority either verified the information with the obligee or the obligee failed to respond.

 

The public authority will resume collecting child care expenses when either party provides information that child care costs are incurred, or when a child care support assignment takes effect under section 256.741, subdivision 4.  The resumption is effective as of the first day of the month after the date that the public authority received the information.

 

(b) If the parties provide conflicting information to the public authority regarding whether child care expenses are being incurred, the public authority will continue or resume collecting child care expenses.  Either party, by motion to the court, may challenge the suspension, continuation, or resumption of the collection of child care expenses under this subdivision.  If the public authority suspends collection activities for the amount allocated for child care expenses, all other provisions of the court order remain in effect.

 

(c) In cases where there is a substantial increase or decrease in child care expenses, the parties may modify the order under section 518A.39.

 

(d) In cases where child care expenses have terminated, the parties may modify the order under section 518A.39.

518A.42 ABILITY TO PAY; SELF-SUPPORT ADJUSTMENT.

 

Subdivision 1.  Ability to pay.  (a) It is a rebuttable presumption that a child support order should not exceed the obligor's ability to pay.  To determine the amount of child support the obligor has the ability to pay, the court shall follow the procedure set out in this section.

 

(b) The court shall calculate the obligor's income available for support by subtracting a monthly self-support reserve equal to 120 percent of the federal poverty guidelines for one person from the obligor's gross income parental income for determining child support (PICS).  If the obligor's income available for support calculated under this paragraph is equal to or greater than the obligor's support obligation calculated under section 518A.34, the court shall order child support under section 518A.34.

 

(c) If the obligor's income available for support calculated under paragraph (b) is more than the minimum support amount under subdivision 2, but less than the guideline amount under section 518A.34, then the court shall apply a reduction to the child support obligation in the following order, until the support order is equal to the obligor's income available for support:

(1) medical support obligation;

 

(2) child care support obligation; and

 

(3) basic support obligation.

 

(d) If the obligor's income available for support calculated under paragraph (b) is equal to or less than the minimum support amount under subdivision 2 or if the obligor's gross income is less than 120 percent of the federal poverty guidelines for one person, the minimum support amount under subdivision 2 applies.

 

Subd. 2.  Minimum basic support amount.  (a) If the basic support amount applies, the court must order the following amount as the minimum basic support obligation:

 

(1) for one or two children child, the obligor's basic support obligation is $50 per month;

 

(2) for two children, the obligor's basic support obligation is $60 per month;

(4) for four children, the obligor's basic support obligation is $80 per month;

 

(3) (5) for five or more children, the obligor's basic support obligation is $100 $90 per month.; and

 

(6) for six or more children, the obligor's basic support obligation is $100 per month.

 

(b) If the court orders the obligor to pay the minimum basic support amount under this subdivision, the obligor is presumed unable to pay child care support and medical support.

 

If the court finds the obligor receives no income and completely lacks the ability to earn income, the minimum basic support amount under this subdivision does not apply.

 

Subd. 3.  Exception.  (a) This section does not apply to an obligor who is incarcerated.

 

(b) If the court finds the obligor receives no income and completely lacks the ability to earn income, the minimum basic support amount under this subdivision does not apply.

 

(c) If the obligor's basic support amount is reduced below the minimum basic support amount due to the application of the parenting expense adjustment, the minimum basic support amount under this subdivision does not apply and the lesser amount is the guideline basic support.

 

Sec. 9.  Minnesota Statutes 2020, section 518A.43, is amended by adding a subdivision to read:

 

Subd. 1b.  Increase in income of custodial parent.  In a modification of support under section 518A.39, the court may deviate from the presumptive child support obligation under section 518A.34 when the only change in circumstances is an increase to the custodial parent's income and:

 

(1) the basic support increases;

 

(2) the parties' combined gross income is $6,000 or less; or

 

(3) the obligor's income is $2,000 or less.

(b) Except as otherwise provided by contract or allowed by law, preverdict, preaward, or prereport interest on pecuniary damages shall be computed as provided in paragraph (c) from the time of the commencement of the action or a demand for arbitration, or the time of a written notice of claim, whichever occurs first, except as provided herein.  The action must be commenced within two years of a written notice of claim for interest to begin to accrue from the time of the notice of claim.  If either party serves a written offer of settlement, the other party may serve a written acceptance or a written counteroffer within 30 days.  After that time, interest on the judgment or award shall be calculated by the judge or arbitrator in the following manner.  The prevailing party shall receive interest on any judgment or award from the time of commencement of the action or a demand for arbitration, or the time of a written notice of claim, or as to special damages from the time when special damages were incurred, if later, until the time of verdict, award, or report only if the amount of its offer is closer to the judgment or award than the amount of the opposing party's offer.  If the amount of the losing party's offer was closer to the judgment or award than the prevailing party's offer, the prevailing party shall receive interest only on the amount of the settlement offer or the judgment or award, whichever is less, and only from the time of commencement of the action or a demand for arbitration, or the time of a written notice of claim, or as to special damages from when the special damages were incurred, if later, until the time the settlement offer was made.  Subsequent offers and counteroffers supersede the legal effect of earlier offers and counteroffers.  For the purposes of clause (2), the amount of settlement offer must be allocated between past and future damages in the same proportion as determined by the trier of fact.  Except as otherwise provided by contract or allowed by law, preverdict, preaward, or prereport interest shall not be awarded on the following:

(5) that portion of any verdict, award, or report which is founded upon interest, or costs, disbursements, attorney fees, or other similar items added by the court or arbitrator.

 

(c)(1)(i) For a judgment or award of $50,000 or less or a judgment or award for or against the state or a political subdivision of the state, regardless of the amount, or a judgment or award in a family court action, except for a child support judgment, regardless of the amount, the interest shall be computed as simple interest per annum.  The rate of interest shall be based on the secondary market yield of one year United States Treasury bills, calculated on a bank discount basis as provided in this section.

 

On or before the 20th day of December of each year the state court administrator shall determine the rate from the one-year constant maturity treasury yield for the most recent calendar month, reported on a monthly basis in the latest statistical release of the board of governors of the Federal Reserve System.  This yield, rounded to the nearest one percent, or four percent, whichever is greater, shall be the annual interest rate during the succeeding calendar year.  The state court administrator shall communicate the interest rates to the court administrators and sheriffs for use in computing the interest on verdicts and shall make the interest rates available to arbitrators.

 

This item applies to any section that references section 549.09 by citation for the purposes of computing an interest rate on any amount owed to or by the state or a political subdivision of the state, regardless of the amount.

 

(ii) The court, in a family court action, may order a lower interest rate or no interest rate if the parties agree or if the court makes findings explaining why application of a lower interest rate or no interest rate is necessary to avoid causing an unfair hardship to the debtor.  This item does not apply to child support or spousal maintenance judgments subject to section 548.091.

 

(2) For a judgment or award over $50,000, other than a judgment or award for or against the state or a political subdivision of the state or a judgment or award in a family court action, the interest rate shall be ten percent per year until paid.

 

(3) When a judgment creditor, or the judgment creditor's attorney or agent, has received a payment after entry of judgment, whether the payment is made voluntarily by or on behalf of the judgment debtor, or is collected by legal process other than execution levy where a proper return has been filed with the court administrator, the judgment creditor, or the judgment creditor's attorney, before applying to the court administrator for an execution shall file with the court administrator an affidavit of partial satisfaction.  The affidavit must state the dates and amounts of payments made upon the judgment after the most recent affidavit of partial satisfaction filed, if any; the part of each payment that is applied to taxable disbursements and to accrued interest and to the unpaid principal balance of the judgment; and the accrued, but the unpaid interest owing, if any, after application of each payment.

 

(4) Interest shall not accrue on child support judgments.

 

(d) This section does not apply to arbitrations between employers and employees under chapter 179 or 179A.  An arbitrator is neither required to nor prohibited from awarding interest under chapter 179 or under section 179A.16 for essential employees.
