Newark, NJ asked in Child Support for New York

Q: Does the court considered both my disability and employment for child support in the state of New York.

My ex wife is trying to take me to court once again to increase child support payment I’ve not missed a payment it gets taking directly out of my check from my current employment and she’s constantly harassing me I have reason to believe she somehow found out my disability no very legal then went ahead to file a motion for increase of child support. Is disability something that is taking into consideration since is not considered a income and I have employment who covers support.

A: Actually, disability IS a form of income for child support purposes. Thus, if you both receive disability + job income, they'll both count for support calculation purposes. Schedule a consult with a NYC Child Support Attorney for a full assessment.
