Yes, child support payments are not based on the gender of the parent who pays or receives.
Child support in Brooklyn is based on which parent provides the primary residence to their children, and which parent earns more money.
When parents share custody in a fairly even way, the court will consider the higher earning parent the “non-custodial” parent by default, and they will make child support payments to the lower earning parent for childcare costs.
Depending on the details of your situation, as a parent who works from home you may have an excellent chance to win full custody of your children.
By emphasizing your ability to be home with your children when they get home from school and other “stability” factors, it can be fairly easy to present a strong, substantive case for you to have custody of your children.
The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino help clients make the strongest possible case for child custody in Brooklyn.
