Child Support Guidelines

Child Support Guidelines in New York State

How Are Payments Determined?

In the state of New York, child support is traditionally paid by the non-custodial parent (the parent that does not have primary physical custody of the child). These payments are intended to be used for the support, maintenance, and education of the child. Expenses that fall outside of these parameters and are not covered by child support include:

  • Clothes
  • Vacations
  • Voluntary gifts
  • Transportation

The receiving parent can collect support payments until the child is 21 years of age, or is earlier emancipated. Further child support guidelines, which are outlined in the New York Child Support Standards Act, contain tables that consider the gross income of both parents, as well as appropriate deductions, in order to calculate an accurate support payment to be given to the parent with primary custody.

Our Long Island family lawyers are available to provide you with in-depth information in the event that you have questions regarding child support guidelines. In addition, we can provide you with professional legal representation in the event that you are attempting to settle an issue of child support with your ex-spouse, so that your chances of a successful resolution are considerably increased.
