Child Support

In New York both parents are responsible for their children’s support.  That support can be determined by a legal formula applied to income, or by an agreement or court decision that deviates from the formula.   Whether by formula or not, many complex issues can be involved in achieving a just and favorable child support obligation.  For example, hidden income may need to be uncovered.  Expert analysis of tax consequences can structure support to maximize financial benefits to both parents.  Courts can impute income to non-working or “underemployed” parents in setting child support based on evidence presented skillfully at trial.  Child support can also be modified when circumstances change, and a new 2010 law will have far-reaching effects on such modifications.  A thorough understanding of local decisions and court practices can be invaluable in negotiating a fair settlement as well as litigating child support matters in court.  Berman Frucco Gouz Mitchel & Schub  p.c. attorneys bring experience, knowledge and skill to negotiating and, where necessary, litigating all aspects of child support and its modification.
