What Determines Child Support in New York?

Child support is typically calculated based off a set formula, but specific child support amounts will vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. Combined parental income is determined by first subtracting social security and New York City taxes. Following are basic child support calculations (but these may vary depending upon your particular situation and the needs of the child):

  • One child - 17% of combined parental income
  • Two children - 25% of combined parental income
  • Three children - 29% of combined parental income
  • Four children - 31% of combined parental income
  • Five or more children - 35% of combined parental income
