As an experienced Buffalo Child Support Lawyer, I am often asked by clients how the courts determine child support.
- Generally, for one child, you’ll pay 17% of your net income, for two – 25%, for three – 29%, for four – 31%, and for five – 35%.
New York State’s Child Support Standards Act sets the basic amounts, and the final amount can be negotiated between the parents. Absent another agreement, the number of children determines the amount.
