Child Support in Woodmere, NY
CALL (516) 821-0990 TO RECEIVE HELP FROM AN EXPERIENCED CHILD SUPPORT LAWYER IN WOODMERE, NY.
Child support is mandated by law and is calculated based upon a percentage of income. If both parties are employees earning income that is reported on a W-2 form at year's end, the calculation is a simple mathematical computation. Beyond that amount, the court has discretion to apply the percentages to a higher or lesser amount. While these calculations seem simple, they become very difficult when one party is self-employed or in a cash-based business. In such a situation, the court will try to determine a party's true income in order to apply the percentages. The court is not bound by a tax return and may impute income to a party in appropriate circumstances.
