Federal Regulations require each state to review their state child support guidelines at least every 4 years. In Kansas the Child Support Guidelines Advisory committee has been meeting regularly since mid-2018 to review and update the guidelines.
The committee has released the proposed revision to the Kansas Child Support Guidelines for public comment. Once approved the revised document will be law in Kansas for 4 years until the next revision.
The only way the committee is taking comments is by you filling out a survey. Since the release in late June, we have been busy reviewing the proposed guidelines and getting ready to fill out our surveys. In that process we thought it would be good to share with you our thoughts on these changes as well as our observations on things that were omitted.
You can find our analysis at the following link. The Analysis.
If you are going to be receiving child support or working in family law over the next 4 years we urge you to take the time to read the proposed guidelines and review our analysis. Then fill out a survey and give the committee your feedback.
If you see something we’ve missed, we welcome your feedback.
