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, child custody, visitation, 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. Stark, we feel that our 25 years of experience in divorce and family law matters can be used to your advantage. We have tried hundreds of child support cases. We urge you to consult with a proven NYC divorce lawyer if you have any questions regarding who must pay child support and how much should be paid.
