The Commonwealth of Kentucky has statutes that require parents to support their children whether or not they have custody or visitation rights established. Often child support is determined as part of a divorce or custody proceeding, but it is also frequently handled separately. We can help with either scenario and help you to ensure that your rights are being protected. Child Support is generally calculated based on the Kentucky Child Support Guidelines, but the numbers that are used for that calculation are very important. Those numbers include your income, child care costs and health insurance costs. Our office can assist you by making sure that the calculation is done appropriately and all factors are considered so that the result is fair.
Our office also represents clients with issues regarding modification and enforcement of child support, as well as defending clients who have been charged with contempt for failure to pay. Contact our office for a consultation today. Please bring any documentation relating to your income, health insurance and child care rates that you believe would be helpful to your consultation.
