Why Is My Income Relevant For Child Support In Queens If I’m The Custodial Parent Who Provides Food, Shelter, And Transportation?

Under the child support guidelines used by judges in Queens, the amount of child support is determined by combining the income of both parents, multiplying that by a number based on the number of children the couple shares, and then dividing that amount proportionally between the spouses.

The resulting figure is what the non-custodial spouse will be ordered to pay, while you will receive the payments to assist in the provision of food, shelter, transportation, and other expenses for your children.

There are many factors that can affect this calculation, so it’s important that you work with experienced Queens child support attorneys in order to ensure that your child’s needs are met.
