TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- The Kansas Supreme Court has updated child support guidelines set to take effect next year.

The court adopted the guidelines through Administrative Order 30, which mandates the basis for establishing and reviewing child support orders in Kansas District Courts.

The guidelines help judges and officers decide how much child support a parent should pay to raise their children. Those guidelines include parent income, where the children live, and other factors.

Federal law requires states to review their child support guidelines every four years.

The new guidelines will take effect January 2020. To view the updates, you can visit kscourts.org.
