Spodek Law Group: Experienced Attorneys to Help You with Child Support Proceedings

Child support proceedings can be a challenging and life-altering experience for non-custodial parents. At Spodek Law Group, we understand the importance of having a skilled and experienced attorney on your side to navigate the complexities of child support proceedings. Our team of attorneys has decades of experience in the New York Family Courts and can provide you with the guidance and representation you need to ensure that your rights are protected.

Facts and Figures:

  • Child support orders are legally binding until the child turns 21 years of age.
  • Once the court becomes involved in your case and an order is issued, the debts generated never go away until they are paid in full.
  • The child support percentages in Manhattan are as follows: 17% of the total gross income of the parents for one child, 25% for two children, 29% for three children, 31% for four children, and a minimum of 35% for five or more children.

  • Child support proceedings are an extremely serious matter that should not be taken lightly. If you are a non-custodial parent, it is essential that you seek the assistance of a competent lawyer as soon as the legal process begins. Failure to take these proceedings seriously can result in serious legal and financial consequences that can impact you for years to come.

At Spodek Law Group, we have seen firsthand the devastating effects of non-custodial parents not taking their child support proceedings seriously. We have represented countless non-custodial parents who found themselves with child support orders that they could not reasonably meet. Our attorneys understand the gravity of these situations and are committed to helping our clients achieve the best possible outcome in their child support proceedings.

The Importance of Requesting Child Support

Child support proceedings can be initiated separately or as part of a divorce or custody hearing. Whether you are a custodial or non-custodial parent, it is essential that you understand the importance of requesting child support. By doing so, you can ensure that your child receives the necessary financial support they need to thrive.

Facts and Figures:

The court uses a mathematical equation to determine how much money each parent should be contributing towards each child’s upbringing.
Child support percentages in Manhattan are based on the number of children and range from 17% to a minimum of 35% of the total gross income of the parents.

Requesting child support can be a complex process for both parties involved. However, having an experienced family law attorney on your side can improve your chances of obtaining a fair judgment. At Spodek Law Group, our attorneys are well-versed in handling both child custody and child support cases. We can provide you with the guidance and representation you need to ensure that your rights are protected throughout the legal process.

Additionally, a non-custodial parent may also request a child support hearing. By doing so, they can have proof that they have been contributing to the financial support of the child. This type of arrangement can be helpful if the non-custodial parent wishes to request visitation or shared custody of the child. By establishing a court-ordered pattern of child support payments, the parent is more likely to obtain a custody arrangement that is in the best interest of the child.

In conclusion, child support proceedings are a serious matter that requires the assistance of a skilled and experienced attorney. At Spodek Law Group, our attorneys are committed to providing our clients with the guidance and representation they need to navigate the complexities of child support proceedings successfully
