Q: I am getting divorced in New York. My 18 year-old son is out of high school (got GED) and does not want to go to college or get a job. Basically, he sleeps during the day and hangs out at night. He said he wants to live with his father after the divorce. I know this is because he will not have to change his lifestyle living with his father, and knows I would require him to get a job or help around the house to contribute. Although I agree with NY law in supporting your children until age 21, I think the child support should be less than it is when the child is attending school and unable to work. I realize the bigger issue is my son's lack of motivation to move forward. But at the moment, I am asking about the support.

Q: I took my ex husband to child support court last January. He never showed up and he was working off the books. The judge specified a very small amount he's obligated to pay weekly since they didn't have any documentation to show what his income is. I recently found out he started working on the books last April. He owes back child support. Do I need to contact the child support unit to notify them that's he now legally employed? It's been 7 months already.
Q: Ordered to pay $1,200.00/mn (bi-weekly payments of $600.00 to DSS) for child support in May of 2018. Custodial parent no longer receives public assistance and is requesting $800/wk, a $10,000.00 deposit for child's college fund, and payments upto the age of 26 years old. I am willing to pay additional for childcare expenses, but only if custodial parent agrees to seek employment as she is refusing to work. I also provide medical benefits to child through my employer.

Q: After years of seeing her mother use control over her & I that also affected my visitations. I haven't seen my daughter in 6 yrs & my daughter and mother were fighting and she moved out 2 months ago. She still attends H.S. with a 3.7 GPA and turns 18 in Jan & graduates june 2019. She want the child support paid directly to her and I'm more than willing if I can get it terminated and pay until age 21.
