Focused On The Best Interests Of Sons And Daughters Of Divorce

Kentucky requires parents to provide for the needs of their children. A noncustodial parent will generally be required to provide child support payments to the parent with primary custody.

At Hoover and Hurt Law Offices, we provide a full range of services in matters involving child support. Our extensive experience enables us to quickly identify the key issues in your divorce and take the necessary measures to achieve your goals.

We can address all child support matters, including:

  • Establishing the required support level
  • Modifying the child support amount
  • Establishing paternity
  • Enforcing child support orders

Kentucky Child Support Guidelines

There are a number of guidelines that will determine the amount of child support to be paid after your divorce. These include the number of children, the incomes of you and your spouse, residency time of the child with each parent, offsets and provisions for health care and educational expenses, and other factors.

Jeff Hoover has more than 20 years of experience in family law, and has a thorough knowledge of the law regarding child support and the application of the guidelines. He will work diligently to achieve your child support goals while protecting your rights.

Child Support Modifications

A child support order will remain in place until one parent obtains a modification of the order. When a significant change in circumstances occurs, either the parent paying support or the one receiving it can go to court to obtain a modification. A job layoff, disability or increase in a parent's salary can provide sufficient basis for obtaining a modification. A change in a child's health care or educational needs can also be the basis for a modification.

In most cases, Hoover and Hurt Law Offices can modify a child support order efficiently for a reasonable flat fee. Some modifications may require significant legal effort to achieve.
