The child support process in Kentucky

Child support can be a challenging issue during any divorce which is what makes it helpful for divorcing parents to understand the child support process and how child support is calculated. The family law system serves as a resource to help divorcing couples determine child support which provides for the care and support of children.

Divorces can be stressful and child support can be a stressful part of a divorce which is why trained guidance and understanding the family law resources available to help can be useful. The amount of child support the non-custodial parent is required to pay in Kentucky is calculated by law. The formula that is used to calculate child support evaluates several factors when determining the child support amount that is ordered.

Child support calculations take into account each parent's income; the number of children provided for; medical expenses and health insurance costs; child care expenses; any special needs of the child; and the parenting and visitation plan and who has primary custody of the child. In addition, it may be necessary to modify a child support order in some circumstances which is why it is important for divorcing couples to be know how to request a child support modification.

Child support does not necessarily have to be a stressful part of the divorce process. There are many family law resources available to guide divorcing couples through the child support process of establishing a child support order and any modifications that may come up down the road.
