Amounts deducted from income for child support

There are many things that parents provide for their children as they grow up. They provide love and emotional support, but also provide most of their children's financial support as well. In fact, parents are required to provide shelter, food and clothing to children until they are adults. Parents generally do this together when they are still married or living together, but when the couple is no longer together ensuring both parents provide can be more difficult, especially when one parent has the children more than the other.

Attending mediation for child custody can be helpful

Married couples in New York generally live together and each play a role in raising their children. One parent may work more than the other and one may spend more time with the children, but generally even parents are involved in their children's lives. This is why it can be so difficult when couples divorce. Parents are no longer able to see their children every day and this can be a difficult situation for both the parents and the children. So, child custody decisions can be very emotional.

How the issue of spousal maintenance is decided in a divorce

People in New York have different lives from each other. Each person is different and therefore the choices they make will be different. Another aspect that affects the decisions people make is the amount of money they earn. When people have more money they can afford more things than those with less money. These same things are true of marriages as well. Each marriage is different and couples make varying amounts of money. Therefore, the different assets they acquire will vary drastically.

What are the differences between legal and physical custody?

There are many people who get divorced every year in New York and divorce seems to be getting more and more common. The outcomes of these divorces will vary and be unique depending on the specific circumstances of each couple's marriage. However, the major issues that the couples will have to work through are the same. They will have to make decisions about dividing their assets and debts, spousal maintenance, child custody, visitation and child support.
