What You Need to Know about Child Support in New York
The state laws of New York provide an objective structure when it comes to child support. The non-custodial parent is responsible for the child support amount once the divorce is finalized. When figuring out the amount of support to be paid, the state will look at the income of both parents and then establish percentages of the total income that needs to be paid dependent on the number of children in the home.
Typically, the calculations for child support are quite easy and straightforward, but there are some exceptions when the state starts to factor them in. Some of the exceptions include:
- Specials needs of any of the children
- Treatment of income when the combined total is over $130,000 per year
- Income from resources other than those considered employment
