Child Support Laws in Kentucky

When it comes to child support, understanding the laws and regulations specific to Kentucky is crucial. At the Law Office of Stanley E. Robison, Jr., we specialize in providing comprehensive insights and guidance on child support matters, ensuring our clients are well-informed and equipped to make the best decisions for their children.

Calculating Child Support

Child support in Kentucky is calculated based on various factors, including the income of both parents, number of children, and any additional expenses related to the child's needs. Our experienced lawyers will assess your unique situation and help you navigate the complexities of child support calculations accurately.

Income Consideration

When determining child support, the court takes into account both the custodial and non-custodial parent's income. This ensures that the child's financial needs are adequately met. Our attorneys will meticulously evaluate income sources, including employment, self-employment, investments, and benefits, to ensure fair calculations.

Shared Custody and Deviation

In cases of shared custody, where both parents share physical and legal custody, child support calculations may differ. Our legal team will guide you through the specific guidelines and help determine if a deviation from the standard child support formula is necessary. We will strive to achieve a resolution that benefits the child's wellbeing while considering the financial circumstances of both parents.

Modification and Enforcement of Child Support Orders

Our law office understands that life circumstances can change, requiring modifications to existing child support orders. Whether you seek to modify or enforce an existing child support order, our skilled attorneys will provide diligent representation to protect your rights and the best interests of your child.

Modification of Child Support

Modifications to child support orders may be necessary if there is a significant change in circumstances, such as income variations, medical expenses, or changes in custody arrangements. We will assist you throughout the modification process, ensuring all necessary documentation is prepared and addressing any challenges that may arise.

Enforcement of Child Support Orders

If the non-custodial parent fails to comply with court-ordered child support obligations, enforcement actions may be required. Our experienced attorneys will take all necessary legal steps to ensure compliance, such as wage garnishment, property liens, and seeking enforcement through the court system.
