How much child support will be ordered?

When determining how much child support will be ordered, the court will consider all relevant factors, including:

  • The financial resources and needs of both parents.
  • The child's needs.
  • The physical and emotional condition of the child.

The Kansas Supreme Court has adopted child support guidelines which are used as a basis when determining a child support order. These guidelines are based on the philosophy that both parents share in the duty to support their children based on their contribution of the combined family income; therefore, a portion of each parent's income is allocated to their children.

In Kansas, child support continues until the child turns 18; however, if the child turns 18 and he or she is still in high school, then child support will continue until June 30 of the school year during which the child turns 18.

Child support can be change if there has been a significant change in circumstances, but it can only be changed for future payments, not past due payments. A parent should contact an attorney right away to see if a child support order can be lowered since support can only be lowered for future payments.
