When undergoing a divorce, settling child support issues is important before you settle your final order. Child support can help maintain your child's well-being and standard of living until they reach adulthood.
The parent who does not have custody may be required to help the custodial parent pay for issues related to the child's or children's care and upbringing. This includes, but is not limited to:
Even if you have joint custody, having a child support order is still in your best interest. For assistance in getting the financial support that you and your family need, contact HD Family Law Group today.
In New York, child support is calculated based on the amount of money the custodial and noncustodial parents make, minus expenses, the number of children that you and your ex-spouse have together, and what the standard of living that the children are accustomed to.
For our high net worth clients, we work closely with certified public accountants and financial planners to help negotiate issues of support that protect your finances and your children. These on-call accountants understand issues related to taxes, finances, accounting, and business balance sheets that are essential in determining proper support payments.
