How is Child Support Calculated in New York
Raising children can be expensive and going from a two-income household to a single-income household may be stressful. In New York, the amount of child support is based on a specific set of criteria which translates into a specific percentage of the noncustodial parent’s income.
At Duke Law Firm, P.C., I can help assess your current financial situation to ensure the amount set by the court is fair. I can also make sure all contributing factors to your finances are taken into consideration and advocate for your interests to make sure your resources are distributed fairly.
