While divorcing or separating parents may disagree on many issues, all parties can agree that the needs of the child must be provided for. To what extent each parent fulfills that duty is determined by the child support arrangement.
At the The Law Firm of Poppe & Associates, PLLC, we provide legal guidance and advocacy in child support matters for clients throughout the New York City metropolitan area. Our attorneys are dedicated to protecting the best interests of the children in child custody and child support matters.
Child Support in New York
In New York, child support is determined by guidelines which take into account a number of factors, including:
- The number of children
- The income of each parent
- Annual child care expenses
- Alimony arrangements
Whether you have legal or physical custody of the child, it is important that your rights are protected and that the other parent is fulfilling his or her obligations.
Our attorneys can assist you with all of the legal details involved in determining child support, including complex issues such as imputing income.
We also handle child support modifications and enforcement.
