AGGRESSIVE ADVOCACY FOR YOUR CHILD’S FUTURE
Divorce should never leave you unable to care for your children. Because of this, non-custodial parents are required to pay child support in accordance with specific guidelines. In New York, this support is determined pursuant to the Child Support Standards Act and Family Court Act, which provides guidelines for calculating payments based on percentages of the non-custodial parent’s income.
It is a different situation with high net worth divorces. In New York, when combined parental income exceeds $148,000*, a unique set of rules comes into play. The court will use the standard child support percentage and multiply it by the income in excess of $148,000*. It will also consider statutory factors, such as the financial resources of both parents and the child, tax consequences, and the child’s standard of living prior to the divorce.
Unfortunately, some parents hide assets or underreport their income to minimize the amount of child support they must pay.
