We Want Joint Custody In Brooklyn, So Who Pays Child Support?

The higher earning spouse in a divorce is typically considered the non-custodial parent for the purposes of child support, but there can be many variations on that theme.

Today, plenty of divorcing couples earn similar salaries, and creative approaches to co-parenting after divorce may mean that New York’s child support guidelines aren’t a good fit in your case.

Depending on your judge and your attorneys, you and your spouse may be able to exercise some or a lot of discretion in how you craft your custody agreement.

The most important thing the judge will want to see is that the agreement is centered wholly around what is best for your child – not what is most convenient for you or your spouse.

At Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino, we help our clients develop the very best custody agreements to protect their children and their financial interests down the road.

Call us today at 718-725-9601 and talk to an experienced Brooklyn child custody attorney for free.
