Factors in Child Support Calculations
In most cases, the parent who has primary custody receives payments from the other parent. However, child custody arrangements can be complex, leading to confusion about who pays who and how much they should pay. There are specific guidelines used by family courts in the state of New York in order to ensure children are properly provided for. Using a percentage of the parents' incomes and a few other factors, the court can determine how much should be paid.
A few factors that are considered in a child support calculation include:
- The income and earning capacity of each parent
- The healthcare and educational needs of the child
- The existing or proposed child custody agreement
