Child Support in Long Island, New York

Particular child support amounts will vary depending upon the jurisdiction as well as the particular case. Generally speaking, the court will apply a percentage in order to calculate child support that should be paid by the non-custodial parent. While there are often set percentages for cases involving a combined parental income of below $136,000, percentages may also apply in cases involving higher income levels.

Combined parental income is determined by taking the parents' income from their most recent income tax return and then deducting certain required items, including social security and New York City tax, if applicable. In general the child support percentage then calculated will vary depending upon the number of children as well as the jurisdiction.
