New York Child Support Stipulation Lawyer
What is a Stipulation Regarding Child Support?
The Child Support Standards Act requires certain Child Support Guidelines be followed unless both parties agree otherwise in writing.
A Stipulation Regarding Child Support is an agreement that you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse enter into as part of your divorce in which you can:
- opt out of the Child Support Guidelines and
- sets the terms and conditions of the child support for your child or children
The minimum amount of child support allowed by law is $25 per month per child.
