Payment of child support from one parent to another is governed by the Child Support Standards Act appearing in the New York State Domestic Relations Law and the Family Court Act. This law provides for a presumptively-correct amount of child support to be paid from the non-custodial parent to the custodial parent. Even though the law is complicated, and does have many exceptions and limitations to its use, the general rule is that the non-custodial parent pays a percentage of his or her income for the support of the children.
The percentage of income paid for child support is determined by calculating the combined gross income of the parents, after deducting from each parent's income the amounts he or she actually paid for FICA (Social Security taxes and Medicare taxes).
Child support obligations also include payment by parents of their shares of health insurance coverage, uninsured health-related expenses, daycare expenses, and the child’s educational expenses.
Parents are required to support their children until they reach the age of 21 years, or are otherwise emancipated.
