Are you a parent in Kentucky who’s divorced or going through the process of getting a divorce? How much child support will you receive or owe?
Kentucky law provides for default child support payment amounts that depend on:
- How many children you have of this marriage,
- Any other child support payments you may owe from other marriages
- How much you and the other parent earn
- How much parenting time you are responsible for.
To accompany our comprehensive guide to a Kentucky divorce, we made a child support calculator.
It incorporates the data and logic described in Kentucky Revised Statute § 403.212 and takes into account the update added in KY. REV. STAT. § 403.2121, which modifies the guidelines to account for the ever-more-common joint-custody with equal parenting time arrangement.
