Does NCP have to pay Catholic school tution if he didn't agree to Catholic school?

Q: My fiance has a 4 year old with his ex. He is on child support but there is no visitation/custody order. They have a verbal agreement of every other weekend for visitation. He wants his child to go to a public school for prek but he just found out the mother enrolled her in Catholic school and now he is worried that the child support will increase. He was already paying a portion in the child support for her preschool. The ex lives 2 hours away by train. We are not familiar with the schools in their area but my finance wants the child to go to public school. He is upset that the mother made this decisions without his consent. But like I said there is no official court order. Does he still need to pay the school tuition or can he modify his child support to not include the school since he wasn't consulted on that decision.

Can the courts consider that there are two incomes in the household and not one?

Q: I live in nys and i am at the tail end of the childsupport proceedings. My sons father receives SSI of $1400 a month. They did a temporary order for $175 a month. He is married and his wife works. So can the court take that fact into consideration? He is not only dependent on one income there is two incomes in the household. A: The short answer is: most likely not. Generally only the parent's income is counted. Conceivably, one could contend that the person he's residing with helps defray expenses he'd otherwise incur, but same is a relatively hard argument to win.

I live in nyc. I have an order for child support if my sons father wins his lawsuit is my son entitled to some of the money?

Q: Today we got an child support order put in place. My sons father has a pending lawsuit and if he wins a big sum of money is my son entitled to some? Or would I have to go back to court to get my support modified? A: Beyond the issue of compensation for lost wages, a large lump-sum may be considered as a factor in warranting a deviation from guidelines. Certainly if it's paid out as structured income, it would be counted. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Child Support attorney for a full assessment.
