White Plains Child Support Attorney

Among the first considerations during divorce are the financial needs of children. In New York, it is mandatory to include child support in any divorce settlement or decree where children are involved. The calculation, defined by the Child Support Standards Act, is based upon a percentage of parental income. In addition to basic child support, parents are responsible, proportionate to income, for payment of child care expenses and the child's or children's unreimbursed medical costs.

Child support is obligatory and cannot be voluntarily waived by either parent or discharged in bankruptcy. Because of the unique variables involved when calculating child support, the assistance of a skilled attorney is invaluable. We can assist you in determining whether, in your case, it is appropriate to deviate from the statutory formula. If you are seeking child support or additional child support, or if you need to reduce the amount of child support you have been ordered to pay, we encourage you to contact us.
