Child Support & Spousal Support
As people who are going through a divorce can attest, the process of figuring out spousal support and child support can be difficult. Divorcing couples might think of these two kinds of financial support as being intertwined, and while they do have some common attributes, they are not necessarily related. However, as experienced spousal support and child support attorneys, we are adept at handling both of these situations.
In general, spousal support, known to many people as alimony, and child support are to be paid on a regular basis in order to maintain a comparable predivorce standard of living. In many cases, New York courts do not leave much room to deviate from a standard formula when it comes to child support.
Alimony, however, can be affected by many factors. It can vary based on the income, age and employment skills of either party, and can vary significantly from case to case. We can help guide a parent who is confronting either or both of these types of support.
