Basic Child Support Obligation in New York

Child support in NYC  is calculated using a percentage of both parents’ combined income (after deductions) that varies by the number of children. There’s a cap on income used in the calculation ($154,000 currently). For income exceeding the cap, the court decides if the standard percentages apply or uses a different approach.

The combined parental income is then applied to a standard percentage rate, which varies based on the number of children:

  • 17% for one child
  • 25% for two children
  • 29% for three children
  • 31% for four children
  • At least 35% for five or more children

These percentages are applied to the combined parental income up to the aforementioned income cap.
