Kentucky Child Support Law

How Do I Obtain Medical Support For My Child?
The Kentucky child support law decision as to which parent is going to provide medical insurance coverage for the child and how medical bills will be paid is established in the divorce settlement. However, in the absence of such an agreement, the courts may order one or both parents to provide health care insurance coverage for the child and or pay for the health care expenses of the child.

Can Child Support Payments be Collected From Parents Who Live In Another State?

Yes. Kentucky child support law office can work with staff at comparable offices in the other state to establish or enforce a child support order. Therefore, even if the non-custodial parent lives in a different state, a child support case can be opened at your local child support office.

How Do I Make A Child Support Payment?
Like most states, Kentucky has a provision for withholding child support directly from the earnings of the non-custodial parent. These funds are withheld just like income tax is withheld from earnings payments. Income withholding is the simplest method for both parents and the state to pay, distribute, and receive child support. If preferred, child support payments can also be mailed directly to the state’s Division of Child Support at the following address:
