Support Matters

Let An Experienced Lawyer Be Your Guide In Child And Spousal Support Matters

In New York, child support is controlled by statute.  Both parents have a financial obligation to support their children. The child support law includes mandatory add-on expenses.   In addition, parents agree on additional costs for which they will voluntarily pay.  Such expenses are essential to discuss with Attorney Kellman.  She will guide you through the required support calculations and help you to understand what additional contributions may be appropriate for your family.  These expenses may include:

  • Child care
  • Health insurance costs
  • Unreimbursed medical expenses
  • School and extracurricular activities
  • Summer Camp
  • Educational expenses, which may include tutoring and college expenses

In addition to child support, support to a spouse, called maintenance in New York, may be required.  Attorney Kellman is well versed in the newly enacted Maintenance Guidelines Law and can assist you in determining whether maintenance is required and if so, the amount and duration of the payments.

Understanding the child support and maintenance laws is essential when you are going through a divorce, and Nancy D. Kellman can assist you with effective resolution of all support matters. If you need assistance with any child support, maintenance or modification issue, email the firm or call 914-328-0900 to set up your initial consultation.
