KY. SUPREME COURT RULES THAT CHILD’S SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS MAY NOT BE DEDUCTED FROM FATHER’S CHILD SUPPORT OBLIGATION –

In an unpublished decision the Supreme Court held on Aug. 25, 2011:

 ” this Court concluded that Social Security benefits received by a child as a result of a parent’s disability—unlike other types of benefits, such as SSI—are not the type of “independent financial resources” that would permit a deviation from the child support guidelines pursuant to KRS 403.211(3)(d)”
