I live in Sioux Falls. My ex-spouse lives in Rapid City. In South Dakota, can the court allocate travel costs when determining a child support obligation?

Maybe.  Under South Dakota law, if travel costs are substantial due to the distance between the parents, the court may order the allocation of these costs, taking into consideration the circumstances of the parties as well as which parent moved and the reason that the move was made.
