Child support is set by standard guidelines under New York law. The amount of child support is based on factors including the incomes of each parent and the number of children. Under the uniform guidelines, costs and expenses such as child care and educational expenses, medical costs, extracurricular activities will also be included in child support.
In all circumstances, the court must be presented with compelling evidence that everything is in the best interest of the children involved. While parents can agree to a support level that falls outside the guidelines, judges have discretion in setting support amounts.
