Can I Receive Child Support Under A Joint Custody Arrangement?

  • By: David Bliven, Esq.
  • Published: April 19, 2017

Q: Spouse makes 2.5 to 3.0 times my income each year. We want our child to have equal time in each home (for our child’s sake). Might I be able to get some level of child support? Or a reduced obligation to pay our child’s costs – for example our child’s prep school tuition?

A: David’s Answer: Merely because you have shared custody doesn’t mean there’s no child support. Usually in this instance child support is paid on a % of the differential between 1 parent’s income versus the other. Call a Bronx Child Support attorney to schedule a consult for a full assessment.
