Our team of experienced and knowledgeable attorneys is here to guide you through the complexities of child support calculations, ensuring that you have the information you need to make informed decisions.

Understanding the Child Support Calculation Process

1. Determining Gross Income

One of the key factors in calculating child support in Kentucky is determining the gross income of both parents. This includes income from all sources, such as employment, self-employment, rental properties, investments, and more. Our attorneys will assist you in gathering the necessary documentation to accurately determine your gross income.

2. Assessing Allowable Deductions

After determining the gross income, certain deductions are allowed to calculate the child support obligation. These deductions include taxes, mandatory retirement contributions, health insurance premiums, and child support paid for other children. Our team will ensure that all applicable deductions are considered for an accurate calculation.

3. Determining the Basic Child Support Obligation

Kentucky utilizes child support guidelines that determine the basic child support obligation based on the combined incomes of both parents and the number of children involved. These guidelines aim to provide fair and equitable support for the child's needs. Our attorneys are well-versed in these guidelines and will help you understand how they apply to your situation.

4. Adjusting the Child Support Obligation

While the basic child support obligation is determined by the guidelines, certain factors may warrant adjustments. These factors include shared custody, extraordinary medical expenses, child care costs, and more. Our legal team will analyze your specific circumstances and advocate for adjustments where appropriate.

5. Additional Considerations

Child support calculations in Kentucky also take into account other factors such as education expenses, special needs of the child, and transportation expenses. Our attorneys will ensure that these considerations are addressed throughout the calculation process to ensure a comprehensive assessment of your child support obligation.
