Important Information About Child Support Law

In New York, child support is usually paid by the non-custodial parent for the support, maintenance, and education of the children. Voluntary gifts, transportation, vacation expenses or certain extracurricular activities, events, and extra expenses for the benefit of the child may not be considered "child support." Child support stops when a child reaches the age of 21 or is earlier emancipated. The parents may agree to support their children beyond the age of 21, for example, until the children graduate from college.
