Q: I have 2 kids one 19(lives on campus) the other one 12, I pay child support for both $500 not court regulated just an agreement between me and their mom…a couple of months ago she asked for a notarized letter (I think she applied for welfare) in the letter she wanted me to write that I only pay $250 in child support for the little one which I did and now I got a letter with a court order to establish child support because she alleges that I don’t pay enough…would appreciate some orientation……I live in NJ they live in NY.
A: Generally for 2 kids you’d pay 25% of your adjusted gross income (not including add-ons for medical, educational & childcare expenses). That said, there may be a basis for deviation from guidelines depending on certain circumstances. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Family Law attorney for a full assessment.
