Q: Is it possible to lower child support payments with increased salary when I am already paying a over $ 2,400 in support + Day care expenses? I know it depends on substantial change in circumstances, but is there an upper limit to child support payments? My ex wife makes at least 100 k per year and our combined salary is definitely over 143,000
A: There is no conceivable upper limit – even the $143,000 cap can be exceeded (often in the greater NYC area,, it may go up to $250,000 or more). The real question is: if your income went up, what are you contending is the “substantial change of circumstances” warranting the court reducing the support?
