Inheritances are used in calculating child support payments, because they are considered income. The larger the inheritance, the more effect it can have.
This is true even if you convert the inheritance into assets like cars or properties.
If you have resources against which you can borrow, or which can be liquidated to provide better support for your children, those assets are fair game as far as the court is concerned.
If your financial picture has changed considerably, talk to an experienced Queens child support attorney about strategies that protect the gifts left to you by loved ones, while respecting your obligation to your children.
