If My Income Goes Up, Does That Mean My Child’s Other Parent Pays Less Child Support In Brooklyn?

If your income increases significantly, it may mean that your former spouse will pay less in child support.

The calculations can be complex, but in general one shouldn’t consider passing on a promotion or lucrative job opportunity just because it may reduce the other parent’s child support payment.

All parents are required to support their children in Brooklyn, and your ex’s payments will never fall to zero, however different your incomes are.

At the same time, it’s important to understand the full ramifications of a large change in income.

The child support payment will not change without a modification order from a court, and the attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can help defend against a substantial reduction in your former spouse’s obligation.
