Child Support

Skilled New York Child Support Lawyers

To say that the costs of child-rearing are significant is a gross understatement. However, often it is not until a couple has transitioned from one home to two, that the previously hidden costs of child rearing become all too apparent.

In New York, courts can award child support until a child turns 21, unless he or she is sooner emancipated. In addition to the basic child support obligation, a fixed monthly sum intended to cover food, shelter and clothing, a court can order a parent to pay towards various add-ons, including but not limited to day care that is necessary while the parent who has physical custody is working or obtaining an education to further his or her employment, unreimbursed medical expenses, educational expenses, and extracurricular activities including summer camp.

At Joseph Law Group, P.C., our law firm's quality legal representation is well versed in the law surrounding child support and can effectively prosecute or defend you in an initial determination of support or in proceedings seeking a subsequent modification of support. Our goal is to assist you in resolving child support so that you are able to move forward with your life and so that you do not bear an inequitable share of the expense of rearing your children.

We have answers to all of your child support questions. We can effectively negotiate your interests out of court or represent you during litigation. We can advocate for the rights of the custodial parent, to ensure that he or she receives adequate support, or for the non-custodial parent to ensure that he or she is not unfairly burdened with an excessive or unreasonable award.

If your child developed special needs following the initial determination of support, if the expenses of raising a child has increased in an unanticipated or unreasonable manner, if you have lost your employment or if your income has greatly reduced as a result of the economic downturn, changes in your industry or your own personal health resulting in an extreme hardship, you may be entitled to a modification of child support.

Our dedication to our clients has been the cornerstone of our successful law practice. We are five respected attorneys who share the same mission: advocating for you so that your goals and objectives can be met.
