How Kentucky Judges Calculate Child Support

Child support is often granted as a way to financially compensate the parent who has sole or majority custody of the child. This court order is an essential component to a divorce decree as it allows for the custodial parent to receive a continual payment from the non-custodial parent to help successfully raise the child.

While there is a basic template that judges will look use to determine overall payments of child support, the laws regarding child support and divorce are constantly evolving.

When calculating payments, the following factors may be taken into consideration:

  • Income
  • Health of the parents
  • Health of the children
  • Extraordinary costs, such as special needs or education
  • Education costs and tuition
  • Health insurance of both parents
  • Custody agreements
  • Spousal support
  • Already-standing court orders for child support or restitution
  • Employment status of the parents
