If The Child Support Standards Act Is Calculated As A Percentage Of The Non-Custodial Parent’s Income, Why Do I Have To Provide Mine? Does My Income Change The Amount Of Child Support The Non-Custodial Parent Is Going To Have To Pay?

Your income, along with your former spouse’s income, may change the way the court calculates the support formula.

When the combined parental income exceeds $141,000, the court may choose to consider other factors when establishing the support formula and not rely on the strict percentages laid out in the CSSA.

Factor analysis, as opposed to percentage of income, is fairly standard in New York courts when the combined income exceeds $175,000.

You aren’t required to use the CSSA if you and your former spouse can reach a reasonable agreement among yourselves.
