Calculating Child Support in New York
The New York child support guidelines provide a formula for calculating child support. This formula calculates child support by looking at the income of each parent. The basic child support obligation is for the food, clothing and shelter of the child. Additionally, there may be add-ons to child support to help pay for day care, education or medical expenses.
The best interests of the child are central to all child support determinations. If your child has special needs or there are unique circumstances that require a deviation from the standard child support, we can help you.
Our lawyers have in-depth experience handling all types of complex child support issues. This includes situations involving multiple children, children from previous relationships and adopted children. In any case involving children, our goal is to reach a resolution through negotiation or mediation. However, we recognize that an amicable agreement is not always possible. In these cases, our attorneys are prepared to go to court in order to protect our clients’ rights.
Changing Child Support Payments and Enforcing Payment
Over time, circumstances may change for each of the parents and for the child. If there has been a substantial change in circumstances that impacts child support, we may be able to help you modify the child support amount. Additionally, we help custodial parents enforce existing child support orders.
