Child support in both Kansas and Missouri is determined using a worksheet and/or a formula (which are different in each state). In both states, 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 the parents to determine the amount of child support by agreement, unlike in Kansas courts. The attorneys at Juris Law & Mediation understand how to calculate the child support that meets the requirements of either state, and can explain the nuances of these line items.

Child Support Modification
For child support modification to occur, most states require proving a change in the circumstances of the child or the custodial parent or some other triggering event to allow for a modification. When it comes to post-decree or post-judgment modifications of child support, custody and visitation, we are experts with helping you navigate the Court process and even try helping you avoid the need for Judge intervention. We have successfully represented parents who were the primary causes of the conflict, and the ones who were defending against it. 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.
