My ex-spouse lives in Sioux Falls, but is currently unemployed. How do you calculate her child support obligation?

Under South Dakota law, except in cases of physical or mental disability, it is presumed for the purpose of determining child support, that a parent is capable of being employed at the minimum wage, and the parent's child support obligation shall be computed at a rate not less than full-time employment at the state minimum wage.
