Do the South Dakota Parenting Guidelines automatically apply under all circumstances?

No.  Under South Dakota law, the standard guidelines are subject to any provision established by a South Dakota state court in the following: a temporary or permanent domestic protection order, an order arising out of an abuse or neglect proceeding, a bond condition arising out of a criminal case, and an order in any other proceeding affecting child custody or support.
