Understanding Child Support Payments

At Straw-Boone Doheny Banks & Mudd, our team of experienced trial attorneys is dedicated to helping clients ensure that they will pay or receive the correct amounts of child support.

If you are separated or divorced, or soon will be, we are here to represent you while child support is being calculated and translated to a court order. We will help you document your family’s financial circumstances while advocating for the outcome you and your children deserve.

How Payments Are Determined

Whether you will pay or receive child support, the monthly amount may be determined through a state calculator in Kentucky or Indiana, based on factors such as the following:

  • The income of both parents: Child support payments are calculated based on the income of both parents, including wages, bonuses and other sources of income.
  • The number of children each of you supports: The number of children involved in the support arrangement also factors into the calculation.
  • Additional expenses: In some cases, additional expenses such as child care, health care and education may be considered when determining support payments.

Many other factors go into the determination of child support. Consult with one of our attorneys to learn which rules pertain to you. We will help ensure that the other parent’s income is accurately represented while the family law court is examining the financial picture of both parents.

Kentucky Child Support Overview

Kentucky’s child support guidelines provide a framework for determining support obligations. As of 2021, there are new income maximums in place to ensure that support payments accurately reflect the financial circumstances of the parents.

Our attorneys are well-versed in these guidelines and can help clients influence child support calculations and the ultimate court order.

Applying For Child Support Services

Petitioning the court for child support in Kentucky may be a straightforward process. Our firm can assist you in completing the necessary paperwork and application process. If unique circumstances such as a disability apply, we will educate you and help you gather the documentation you need to make a compelling case.

Whether you are seeking to establish a new child support order or modify an existing one, we will stand for your rights and ensure that your child’s needs are met.

Indiana Child Support Overview

In Indiana, child support obligations are determined based on several factors, including the financial resources of both parents and the child’s needs.

Our attorneys have a deep understanding of Indiana’s child support laws and can provide you with the guidance you need to increase the likelihood that you will receive or pay the right amount of child support.

Child Support Enforcement

Enforcing child support orders is crucial to ensuring that children receive the financial support they need. Our firm has experience handling child support enforcement cases and can help you take legal action if the other parent fails to meet their obligations.

We are committed to protecting your and your children’s rights, and we will work tirelessly to ensure that court orders are enforced. Ask us about methods that the court may apply when your child’s other parent is not following the child support order.
