It is here!  The MFSRC Case Law document has been updated through April 2016 thanks to the work of Tom Frenette, Special Assistant Ramsey County Attorney, Carrie Briggs, Ramsey County Paralegal, and the Ramsey County and Hennepin County Child Support Law Clerks, and through the support of MFSRC.  The Ramsey County and Hennepin County Child Support Law Clerks will be keeping up with relevant case law, and the document will be updated approximately 3-4 times per year.  Anyone who sees any interesting local cases or federal cases, published or unpublished are encouraged to email them to Carrie Briggs, Ramsey County Paralegal at  Enjoy the last eight years of cases!

New Redistricting Announcement

Hello MFSRC members!

As you are aware, the 43rd MFSRC conference is just around the corner. We look forward to seeing all of you again for another three days of educational opportunities, networking and entertainment! As you are aware, every year we hold elections for various spots within the MFSRC board. There are eight district representatives that are elected every year.

To ensure that the districts are represented as equally as possible, every few years the board needs to make changes to districts. This year is one of those years. Please take a minute and look at the updated regional map (which will be in the program at the conference as well) that shows the new districts. The counties that have changed include: Des Moines Valley, Douglas, Grant, Nobles, Todd, Traverse and Southwest Health and Human Services.

Please review the updated MFSRC districts prior to conference. One a side note, when casting ballots this year, make sure to write your district on your ballot and only cast a vote for the person running in your district. In the past some ballots have not been able to be counted as a person did not write their district number down, or voted for a person outside their district. It is important that every vote gets counted.

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you all in October!


Nathan Neuhart, MFSRC President
