Under “Legal Unlicensed Care” limits, a provider is allowed to care for children related to them and children from 1 unrelated family. "Related" means any of the following relationships by marriage, blood, adoption: parent, grandparent, brother, sister, stepparent, stepsister, stepbrother, uncle, aunt, child, niece, nephew. Related also includes a legally appointed guardian. A legal unlicensed provider who wishes to care for children receiving county assistance must “register” with Goodhue County Income Maintenance. Interested persons may call 651-385-3200 or Email.
Social security numbers help the child support agency locate addresses and employment information. Social security numbers are shown on tax returns, pay stubs, and bank statements. Providing this useful information helps the child support agency carry out its duties more efficiently.
The child support agency makes collecting current support a priority. The child support agency also collects past-due support. Past-due support has an interest rate at 2% above the statutory judgment rate. Judgments for fees and spousal support have an interest rate at the statutory judgment rate and are not subject to the 2% additional interest rate.
If you or your children receive DWP, MinnesotaCare, MA, or Child Care Assistance, you will receive the current child support collected in the month that it is due, but you will not receive the medical and/or child care support collected for that month.
For up to the minute case and payment information, you can visit the Minnesota Child Support resource. You can also call the Child Support Payment Line at the following numbers:
If an obligor owes support to more than one family, the child support agency divides payments among the families. After current support is paid for the month it is due, other payments received that month pay past-due support.
Funds collected from federal tax refunds pay past-due support or debts. These funds may be applied to past due amounts or debts owed to the state. If the state keeps any funds, the child support agency will send you a Notice of Collection of Child Support.
Additionally, the County Board has authorized the Sheriff to operate a 911 dispatch center, maintain an adult detention center (jail), operate a uniformed road patrol division, civil/bailiff/transport division, and a water / ATV / snowmobile division to meet the basic statutory requirements of responding to emergencies and investigating major crimes. The Sheriff’s Office also provides canine units, a Tactical (SWAT) Team, school resource officers, and an investigation division to aid us in meeting the public safety concerns of the citizens of Pine Island and all of Goodhue County.
If you need any of these services, contact an attorney or legal services office.
