How Is Child Support Calculated in New York?
In New York State, the court uses the guidelines of the Child Support Standards Act (CSSA) when determining the amount of payment the non-custodial parent owes to the custodial parent. Child support is calculated by multiplying the parents’ combined incomes by a percentage that is based on the number of children that require financial support.
The current child support percentage guidelines are:
- One child: 17%
- Two children: 25%
- Three children: 29%
- Four children: 31%
- Five children or more: at least 35%
These percentages determine how much of the parents’ income goes towards financially supporting the child. That amount is then divided between the parents based on the percentage of their contribution to the combined income.
For instance, if a custodial parent’s income amounts to 35% of the combined total income, the non-custodial parent would be responsible for paying the other 65% of the child support obligation.
