They were so kind and caring throughout the whole experience. Walked with me through everything. They made a difficult and painful time more. I would recommend them to in a heartbeat. Best decision about the divorce I made.

Saratoga Child Support Lawyers
There is no simple rule for calculating child support. In New York, the Child Support Standards Act (CSSA) provides a step-by-step formula used in every court in the state to determine how child support will be allotted. Still, judges have considerable discretion, especially with regards to upper-income families and families with special needs. Our dedicated Saratoga child support lawyers provide sound legal advice, and affordable representation with a track record of success in the courtroom.
Jean M. Mahserjian, Esq., P.C. takes the time to educate our clients on the law, how the court operates and the surest ways to avoid inequities. Our divorce attorneys in Albany advocate for reasonable child support arrangements that meet the needs of the children without creating an undue burden on our client.

Issues regarding New York child support
New York child support is an obligation of both parents, and their status, whether they are married, divorced or were never married at all, is completely immaterial. Since the duty to pay child support remains until the child turns 21, the issues of who pays and how much can change many times, depending on any number of factors.
At Jean M. Mahserjian, Esq., P.C., we understand the court’s thinking and we’ve seen all the ploys of opposing counsel. We can anticipate when the court might assess child support based on earning potential rather than actual earnings, or when a court might cap custody payments that might otherwise be a windfall to the custodial spouse. We fully inform our clients on the operation of the law, how it applies to their circumstances and what strategies are available for asserting their rights. We offer sound, pragmatic advice not only on your initial child support petitions, but on any modifications that might be necessary due to your changed circumstances.
