Kansas Child Support Factors

Either or both parents may be ordered to pay child support, without regard to any marital misconduct, based on the following factors: (1) the financial resources of the child; (2) the physical and emotional conditions and educational needs of the child; and (3) the financial resources, needs, and obligations of both the noncustodial and the custodial parent. Child support payments are to be paid through the clerk of the court or through the court trustee, unless the court orders otherwise. There are specific Supreme Court Child Support Guidelines contained in Kansas Statutes Annotated Chapter 20, Subject 165. [Kansas Statutes Annotated; Chapter 20, Subject 165 and Chapter 60, Article 16, Subject 1610].
