Queens, NY asked in Child Support for New York

Q: If I'm legally married to my wife and were on a public assistance case together with our children why am I paying supp?

Also my taxes have been seized 3 years in a row despite the fact that were are married and are both the custodial parents and have been married for the last 4 years. So public assistance has been taking our tax return saying I owe them.

A: Are you two living together? If so, you should not be paying child support. However, if you are not, then you are obligated to pay support. You should talk to an attorney.
