Achieving Your Child Support Goals Since 1990

In the course of handling hundreds of divorces and family court matters for more than 30 years, our attorneys have learned that obtaining a fair level of support is one of the most important issues in matrimonials.

New York State has a specific law, called the Child Support Standards Act, that calculates the basic amount of child support. The basic child support obligation to be paid by the non-residential parent is based upon a percentage of the combined parental income. In addition to the basic child support obligation, the non-residential parent may have to pay for a portion of the child’s health care, child care, and educational expenses.

Raising a child takes financial resources and you have the right to receive adequate support from your child’s other parent to assist you. Conversely, if illness or the loss of employment creates the need to change the amount of child support paid, a modification proceeding may be appropriate.  A Child Support agreement or order may be modified upon a showing of a substantial change in circumstances, and in some cases where 3 or more years have passed since the order was entered, last modified or adjusted, or where there has been a change in either party’s gross income by 15% or more since the order was entered, last modified, or adjusted.

  • "I have worked with Mr. Giacobbe on my father's Estate Planning consisting of his will, power of attorney and health care proxy. My dad lived in an assisted living facility and Mr. Giacobbe was kind enough to visit him there so we didn't have to go to his office. I would recommend using Mr. Giacobbe for all your Estate Planning needs!"

  • "I have known David Jaworski my entire adult life. We came of age together on the athletic fields of South Buffalo. I could always trust Dave as a friend as we grew up. As we became successful adults, I quickly learned to trust Dave for both his calm judgment and legal skills as the troubles life sometimes bring began to appear. Dave is a skilled negotiator, a powerful litigator and a brilliant legal mind. He is well versed on day to day legal issues, but demonstrates remarkable skill in areas other lawyers might be timid to test. I highly recommend David for any legal issues you might have. "

I appreciate the level of personal service and accessibility that Mario provided, making me feel as if I were his only client, which is assuredly far from the truth. I am beyond grateful for the outstanding legal work that Mario Giacobbe has done on my behalf and cannot recommend his services enough."
