How Are Child Support Payments Calculated?

The state of New York follows a formula to determine the amount of child support you can expect to pay or receive. Generally, this is a straightforward calculation. However, there are certain factors that may cause a court to deviate from the guidelines. We will thoroughly review the circumstances surrounding your case to help ensure that you do not experience any surprises when it comes to a support determination.

Will Support Orders Ever Change?

Orders for support are one of the few areas that are subject to modification following a divorce or separation. The law recognizes that if your financial situation changes, support orders may have to change as well. We handle all legal matters concerning modifications to orders of support.

Enforcing Child Support Orders

Unfortunately, some parents may fail to make court-ordered support payments. In other cases, a parent may falsely accuse the other parent of failing to pay support. In either instance, we can help protect your interests and the interests of your children in enforcement actions.
