Q: Separating from babies father but want to avoid child support court .Says 17% of his income , I should get $325..Is this correct ?He makes $34 a hour at 6 days a week.
A: It’s a bit more complicated than that. One would need to know the amount of hours he puts in per week, as well as whether he gets overtime rates. Also, one would need to know if his employer deducts FICA & NYC local tax form his pay. It’s that amount which constitutes the “adjusted gross income” that is applied to the 17% for 1 child.
