Kansas Child Support Guidelines (effective January 1, 2016)

Office of Judicial Administration staff may not give public legal advice, help with research, or interpret Kansas Child Support Guidelines. If you have questions about how the guidelines apply to your child support case, contact your attorney.

Current Kansas Child Support Guidelines were adopted August 19, 2016, in Kansas Supreme Court Administrative Order No. 287. These updated the guidelines adopted in Administrative Order No. 284 shown below. The guidelines apply to orders issued on or after January 1, 2016.

Child support guidelines established prior to January 1, 2016, which were adopted by Supreme Court Administrative Order No. 261, apply to child support orders issued through December 31, 2015.

New child support guidelines do not impact existing child support orders. Child support orders only change when a judge issues a new order. Until a judge issues a new order, existing orders remain in effect.

Below are the final version and a strikeout version of the guidelines adopted by Administrative Order 284. Also below are the final report from the Kansas Child Support Guidelines Advisory Committee, the economist's report and addendum, and survey results.

Questions regarding the Kansas Child Support Guidelines should be directed to Amy Raymond, director of trial court programs at kansascsg@kscourts.org.
