How is a parent's income used to determine child support in South Dakota?

The South Dakota Legislature established guidelines which courts must use to determine that a fair share of parental income and resources are allocated to the child when that child's parents are separated, divorced or unmarried. The combined monthly incomes of both parents are used in determining the obligation and divided proportionately between the parents based on their net incomes.
