As a parent, you are responsible for providing financial support to your child or children. If you are going through a divorce or are not married to the other parent, you will need to go through the process of determining child support — as either the parent who will be paying support or the parent who will be receiving support on behalf of the children.
Parents on both sides of this issue — those receiving and those paying — want to feel confident that the amount of support that was determined was done so in a fair manner. At Cobert, Haber & Haber Attorneys at Law, our attorneys have helped many parents with child support determinations. While your case is unique, we can draw upon the knowledge gained through our more than 40 years of experience helping parents throughout Nassau County and Long Island.
Child Support Is Calculated By State Guidelines
In New York, a mandatory formula is used to determine the amount of support. The formula considers the combined parental income after taxes. It is possible to deviate from the guidelines in instances of a parent having a substantially high income, and our lawyers are adept at handling the complexities of these matters. Additionally, we have experience handling cases where one party is not being forthcoming regarding his or her income or assets. Whenever necessary, we partner with accountants who can help us identify a person’s hidden assets and actual income.
When dealing with issues involving children, Cobert, Haber & Haber Attorneys at Law places the best interests of the children above all else.
