Child Support

Basic child support is calculated in proportion to the combined parental income but is paid only by the non-custodial parent. In addition to the basic child support obligation, the non-custodial parent may be obligated to pay for a portion of the childcare expenses related to the custodial parent’s employment or education which would lead to employment, and the unreimbursed cost of medical care for the children, among other expenses..

In the state of New York, child support obligations typically end upon a child’s 21 st birthday, but under certain circumstances can end prior to, or after, this.
