Your income, along with your former spouse’s income, may change the way the court calculates the support formula.
When the combined parental income exceeds $141,000, the court may choose to consider other factors when establishing the support formula and not rely on the strict percentages laid out in the CSSA.
Factor analysis, as opposed to percentage of income, is fairly standard in New York courts when the combined income exceeds $175,000.
You aren’t required to use the CSSA if you and your former spouse can reach a reasonable agreement among yourselves.
