We Help 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. We understand New York child support guidelines, and we take steps to protect the best interests of your kids by fighting for a child support order that is fair to them and you.
The attorneys at Arnel Law Firm 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. Curt Arnel is also a CPA, and he is particularly adept at navigating complex financial issues in divorce, including child support.
The Factors That Impact Child Support
The child support formula accounts for all of the following when determining an appropriate amount of child support:
- Daycare expenses
- Childcare costs
- Tuition for school
- Expenses associated with extracurricular activities
The calculation for support will consider all of these things, plus the income of both parents and factors such as how much time a child spends with a 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 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.
