Sec. 2.

Minnesota Statutes 2018, section 518A.42, subdivision 1, is amended to read:


Subdivision 1.

Ability to pay.

(a) It is a rebuttable presumption that a child support
order should not exceed the obligor's ability to pay. To determine the amount of child support
the obligor has the ability to pay, the court shall follow the procedure set out in this section.

(b) The court shall calculate the obligor's income available for support by subtracting a
monthly self-support reserve equal to deleted text begin120deleted text endnew text begin 140new text end percent of the federal poverty guidelines for
one person from the obligor's gross income. If the obligor's income available for support
calculated under this paragraph is equal to or greater than the obligor's support obligation
calculated under section 518A.34, the court shall order child support under section 518A.34.

(c) If the obligor's income available for support calculated under paragraph (b) is more
than the minimum support amount under subdivision 2, but less than the guideline amount
under section 518A.34, then the court shall apply a reduction to the child support obligation
in the following order, until the support order is equal to the obligor's income available for
support:

(1) medical support obligation;

(2) child care support obligation; and

(3) basic support obligation.

(d) If the obligor's income available for support calculated under paragraph (b) is equal
to or less than the minimum support amount under subdivision 2 or if the obligor's gross
income is less than deleted text begin120deleted text endnew text begin 140new text end percent of the federal poverty guidelines for one person, the
minimum support amount under subdivision 2 applies.
