Divorce Law – Child Support In New York

  • In New York State, child support is covered by statute; The Child Support Standards Act.
  • This gives us the correct presumptive correct amount of child support to be paid depending on the amount of children you have.
  • Those percentages are taken from your adjusted gross income.
  • The parties are free to reach an agreement that differs from that as long as it is still in the best interest of the child.
  • The court can also impute income.
