How is child support determined in New York?

Child support is decided by state guidelines described under the Child Support Standards Act: Child support is calculated as a percentage of the adjusted gross income of the non-custodial parent. This law also states that both parents are required to share in their child's financial support to ensure that the child is given an appropriate standard of living.

The appropriate standard of living is based on the combined income of both parents, which includes, but is not limited to:

  • Wages / salaries
  • Workers' compensation
  • Social Security income
  • Disability benefits
  • Unemployment benefits
  • Veterans' benefits
