How do I establish a support order?

Isanti County will establish an order for support if you don’t already have one. We gather information about both parties and draft a proposed order that is served on both parties. If either party objects to the proposal, they can request a hearing where a judge will make the determination. If the parties do not object to the county’s proposal, it will go to a judge for signature. After the judge signs the order, it gets filed with the Court Administrator’s office and sent to both parties.
