In re Marriage of Thomas (Kansas 2014)

Because an adoption subsidy is meant to supplement an adoptive parent’s income for the benefit of a special needs child, the adoption subsidy is in no sense attributable to the adoptive parent. An adoption subsidy is income attributable to the adopted child. Because an adoption subsidy is not income attributable to the parent, but, rather, income of the child, the adoption subsidy could not be considered in the income attributable to the custodial parent for the purpose of calculating child support.
