New York City child support attorney Martin Mohr explains how child support is calculated in New York


New York City child support attorney Martin Mohr publishes a new article ( explaining how child support is usually calculated in New York. The lawyer mentions that child support can be a contentious issue during divorce proceedings. Ensuring the well-being of the child or children in the family should be a priority for both parents.

“Sponsorship must be considered after custody of the children has been determined. Determining fair and appropriate support for your children can be difficult and stressful. There are specific laws in New York that govern child support. Even if one or both parents agree to deviate from the rules, documentation is required. Otherwise, it could be thrown out,” says the New York child support attorney.

The lawyer explains that New York generally uses a formula to calculate the percentage of income a parent must give to the custodial parent. This formula is described in the New York Child Support Standards Act.

For a combined income of up to $143,000, both parents must pay 17% child support. 25% for two children, 29% for three, 31% for four and at least 35% for 5+ children. If the income of both parents exceeds $143,000, the court may deviate from the CSSA standards.

In the article, the attorney says that generally, the non-custodial spouse will have to pay child support to the custodial parent. A spouse may be required to pay child support to the other even if they have joint and equal physical custody.

According to attorney Mohr, “Even if your income doesn’t come from work, it could still be there. New York workers’ compensation includes pensions, scholarships, and annuity payments. This income can be used for alimony purposes. A court will calculate your payments if you received disability, unemployment, social insurance, veterans, and retirement benefits. However, public assistance is not income. All public support received from the state is levied on the parents’ total income.

Finally, the lawyer stresses the importance of having a child support lawyer when it comes to issues such as child support. A qualified attorney may be able to help the parents understand their roles and responsibilities in the divorce and help them reach a favorable agreement.
