Child Support Obligations in New York

Parents are legally obligated to support their children. If you are the noncustodial parent and your child does not live with you, this means that you will be required to pay a portion of your income as child support.

At Angiuli & Gentile, LLP, we can help you understand how the child support laws will apply in your family law case. We help clients who are seeking child support as well as those who are contesting the amount of child support required under the law. We will clearly explain your options and obligations under the law. When necessary, we stand ready to take your case to court to protect your interests and the interests of your child.

How Much Child Support Will Be Paid in My Case?

In New York, the amount of child support in any case is governed by the Child Support Standards Act. These standards provide a formula for the amount of child support you can expect to receive or pay in your case.

In limited situations, the court may deviate from the formula. Our attorneys can help you determine if you qualify for a deviation from the basic child support formula.
