Child Support Lawyers New York
New York Enforces Specific Guidelines
Child support is an important matter in any divorce or legal separation in New York.
The New York Legislature has enacted specific child support guidelines. Specifically, the following percentages are to be applied based on the number of children involved:
- 17% for one child
- 25% for two children
- 29% for three children
- 31% for four children
- At least 35% for 5+ children
These percentages are based upon the first $136,000.00 in combined parental income, adjusted for FICA and local New York City income tax. However, in cases involving high income parties, the Court may deviate from the $136,000.00 income cap. This makes it extremely important that you retain The Kepanis Law Firm to protect your interests whether you are the payor or the payee.
