How much child support must the non-custodial parent pay to the custodial parent in New York?

New York child support is defined as a sum paid either by court order or by a valid agreement between the parents for care, maintenance, and education of any unemancipated child under the age of twenty-one years.  See Domestic Relations Law section 240[1-b][b][2].  Child support is generally set pursuant to a mathematical formula to the Child Support Standards Act.  The statute defines “basic” child support as the outcome of a mathematical formula set forth in guidelines, subject to increase on the basis of various factors, including health care, child care, and education, the latter commonly referred to as “add-on” expenses.  See Domestic Relations Law section 240[1-b][b][1].
