No, men do not always end up paying child support in their divorces in Queens.
Gender is not the barrier to custody that it once was, especially in an era where same-sex marriage means that both parents in a custody fight may be dads.
If you do not want primary custody of your children, or do not win it, you will be required to pay child support, but there are a variety of factors that can change the amount you pay.
If your children spend approximately half of their overnights with you, your payments may be reduced.
If you are responsible for health and dental insurance for your children, your payments may be reduced.
There are a lot of ways to approach child support that can protect your finances while providing for your children.
The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can help you.
