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.
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.
