    Updates to child support guidelines open for public comment

    A 14-member advisory committee spent nearly a year reviewing the current child support guidelines and making proposed updates, which are now open for public review and comment until 8 a.m., Monday, June 22, 2015. Comments can be made through an online survey accessible from the Kansas judicial branch website at http://www.kscourts.org under "What's New."

     

    Every four years, the advisory committee reviews Kansas' child support guidelines to ensure that the roughly $35 million mothers and fathers pay in support each month is equitable for the parents and appropriate for the day-to-day essential needs of the children they support. Child support pays for housing, clothing, transportation, recreation, health care, child care, and other expenses that would have been shared by the parents had the family remained intact.

     

    As a result of the most recent review, began in June 2014, child support obligations could increase by an average of 3.5 percent across all income group beginning in January 2016.

     

    Reviews are by an advisory committee that has included parents who either pay or receive child support, and attorneys, judges, and tax professionals with expertise in child support. Economists are also enlisted to help with the review. Committee members are identified in a report posted on the web page where the survey is accessed, along with the economists’ report, the proposed guidelines, and other useful documents.

     

    After receiving public comment, the Kansas Supreme Court will decide whether to adopt changes to the guidelines as proposed by the advisory committee.
