In New York child support is usually paid by the non-custodial parent for the support, maintenance and education of the children. Voluntary gifts, transportation, vacation expenses or certain extracurricular activities, events and extra-ordinary expenses for the benefit the child may not be considered “child support”. We will discuss education expenses, health insurance for the children, college and additional extra expenses your children require as they grow.
Child support stops when a child reaches the age of 21 or is earlier emancipated. The parents may agree to support their children beyond the age of 21, for example, until the children graduate from college.
During the mediation process we will discuss the Child Support guidelines and “add-ons” to child support and will come up with agreements that will fit your lifestyle and which are in the best interests of the children and family.
