Child Support in New York City
Parents are Obligated to Support their Children
Child support is a legal obligation for a parent to financially support their child regardless of whether the parents are divorced, legally
separated or no longer live with one another. As part of a divorce or separation agreement,
alimony and child support will be settled upon and approved by the court. If you have a child but are not married to, or are no longer in a relationship with the other parent, child support must still be paid. In such a circumstance,
paternity may have to be determined in order to prove that child support is due.
If you are currently paying child support, yet there are changes in your circumstances, a modification of support may be warranted. No matter the reason, at The Law Office of Vivien I.
