Need Help Establishing or Modifying a Child Support Order?

Making the decision to divorce your spouse can be an intimidating decision, especially if children are involved. The thought of supporting your children on your own can be a daunting one. Fortunately, you have legal options and we are here to help. Our New York city child support attorneys have 20+ years of experience and can assist clients throughout all aspects of a support order. We counsel clients on establishing and modifying support orders, to enforcing non-payment. In some instances, even determining the child support amount can involve complicated financial analysis.

When appropriate, we can collaborate with accounting experts who can scrutinize financial disclosures to reveal discrepancies or hidden sources of income. We are also adept at resolving child support disputes through non-adversarial means.

Establishing Child Support

Establishing child support in New York is not an arbitrary decision. The court will typically consider several things when coming to a decision. The state of New York provides statutory guidelines for calculating child support, which is largely based on each parent’s income and the number of children to receive support.

Additional add-on expenses that may be factored into support payments can include:

  • Childcare
  • Health care expenses
  • Educational costs
  • Extra-curricular activities

Modifying & Enforcing Child Support

Circumstances that may warrant a modification to a support order include a substantial change in income, medical emergency, or another situation that inhibits one’s ability to pay. We also have experience with enforcing child support orders in instances where a parent is evading payments.

If you need assistance establishing or modifying a child support order, do not do it alone. Reach out to the Law Office of Deana Balahtsis to get the job done right! Contact our office to speak with a skilled attorney today!
