How much child support will I pay/receive?
Child support in New York State is based upon a percentage of the non-custodial parent’s income. The non-custodial parent is the parent who has the children less than half of the time. The percentages are as follows:
- One child 17%
- Two children 25%
- Three children 29%
- Four children 31%
- Five children or more 35%
What counts as income?
The short answer is – all types of income count. A good starting point is anything that the Internal Revenue Service considers income. This includes but is not limited to the following sources of income:
- Investment income
- Unemployment benefits
- Social security benefits
Can a child support order be modified?
Yes, but it is not easy. To modify a child support order, you have to show that there has been a significant change of circumstances. There is also a new law that passed during October of 2010 that permits a recalculation of child support where the income of the person paying child support has increased by 15%.
