Elizabethtown Child Support Lawyer
Recently, the standards for establishing paternity and structuring child support have changed. While some may still hold onto outdated notions that children always belong with their mothers or that fathers have no say if the couple is unwed, those ideas are quickly being replaced.
With years of experience helping parents understand their options when structuring child support agreements or establishing paternity, we know what it takes to reach an amicable agreement.
Lawyers Helping You Understand Child Support In Kentucky
Although parents are directly involved in structuring child support arrangements, it’s important to remember that the legal right to financial support rests with the child. Ultimately, any support plan should benefit the child.
The formula for determining child support is relatively straightforward in Kentucky. At the Dowan Law Offices, we can help you understand how the payment amount is determined and how to ensure your children receive the amount they are entitled to.
