Child Support Calculations for High Income Individuals in Brooklyn

We Seek Appropriate Financial Support for Your Children

As a parent, you understand how important it is to have financial support for your children after a divorce. Determining an appropriate amount is not always easy, particularly in high-asset divorces. At Arnel Law Firm, we understand New York child support guidelines and we take steps to protect your children’s best interests by fighting for a child support order that is fair to them and you.

Our Brooklyn child support attorneys know that when a divorce issue impacts the well-being of your kids, it is particularly important to reach a beneficial and reasonable solution in a timely manner. Our founding attorney, Curt Arnel, is particularly adept at navigating complex financial issues in divorce, including child support.

Factors That Impact Child Support

When determining an appropriate amount of child support, the child support formula accounts for:

  • Daycare expenses
  • Childcare costs
  • Tuition for school
  • Expenses associated with extracurricular activities
  • Each parent’s income
  • How much time the child spends with each parent

Undisclosed income and assets can affect a child support order, as can multiple other factors. We recognize that an impersonal formula may not be appropriate for your situation, so we will work to reach a support amount that reflects unique and varied income streams.

State guidelines also include caps on how much the supporting parent will have to pay. However, in places where the cost of living is high – such as Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, and other parts of New York – a court can rule to exceed the cap limit. If this is necessary for your situation, our team will gather the documentation to prove it is appropriate to deviate from the standard child support guidelines.
