Child Support Issues Require Serious Legal Attention: Child support is the money that a parent pays for the living and medical expenses of their child. Child support is payable until the child reaches the age of 21, and sometimes, in the case of a written agreement, beyond that age. In New York, child support is most often paid by the non-custodial parent to the custodial parent. The amount of child support that a parent is required to pay is determined by income. Child support is payable even if you have never been married. Many times, in order to obtain an order awarding child support, a parent will have to establish paternity first.
Failure to pay child support is punishable by law and child support enforcement is possible through a variety of means including incarceration, passport withhold, wage garnishment and others. In many cases, failure to pay child support will result in the accumulation of arrears, which can add up fast. DO NOT LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU. Contact our office for help now.
