Kentucky Child Support Laws | Kentucky Revised Statutes Chapters 403 and 405

In Kentucky, the legislature has promulgated laws that set forth the conditions and circumstances for the imposition of a child support order. When parents separate, the children have a right to financial support from both of them and the statutes provide a method for determining how that obligation will be divided between the parents. Factors considered include total income from each parent, the amount of time each spends with the children, the costs of child care, the costs of healthcare as well as the educational and health needs of the children.
