In the state of New York, child support is calculated using a percentage of the combined parental income. The custodial parent has standing or the right to ask for child support of behalf of the child. There are several add-on expenses which the Court may order the parties to contribute. These expenses include healthcare expenses, child care expenses and/or educational expenses.
It is crucial that if you are the custodial parent, you obtain all aspects of child support for your child. For the non-custodial parent, you must make sure child support is accurately calculated.
Sometimes, the Court will include income that is not disposable income. The Law Office of Judy E. Lukose will help make sure that child support is calculated appropriately. Ms. Lukose will tell you what to expect in Court including what the expected figures for child support will be.
