To change, or modify, child support, most states require proving a change in the circumstances of the child or the custodial parent or some other triggering. When it comes to changing things after your divorce or paternity action, which we call post-decree or post-judgement modifications, of child support, custody and visitation, we are experts to help you navigate the Court process and even try helping you avoid the need for Judge intervention.
Our attorneys are tough but fair and excel at representing the rights and desires of our clients without causing additional conflicts with the other party. In Kansas, child support is the right of the children, and is not a supplement for the residential parent. In Kansas the parents cannot negotiate child support amounts, it is based on the income of the parents and other amounts like insurance costs for the children, tax considerations, childcare costs, etc. In Missouri, some courts will allow child support by agreement, unlike in Kansas courts where the child support worksheet must be based in the reality of the parties’ incomes and expenses. The attorneys at Juris understand how to calculate the child support that meets the requirements of either state, and can explain the nuances of these line items.
