Is rent expense should be considered into child support?

Q: I have child support case going on. When i opened it I asked the judge to consider my rent expense because I rent the whole apartment alone just to provide safe living environment for my daughter.The rent amount takes up 75% of my income. The judge said it is irrelevant. Should I do audit for the child support case?

A: David's Answer: Generally the court does not consider "ordinary" expenses such as housing to provide a deviation from guidelines support. Nevertheless, that factor amongst others may provide such a basis and/or have the court rule after a trial that guidelines support would be "unjust or inappropriate." Schedule a consult with a Bronx Child Support attorney for a full assessment.
