  • New York State follows the Child Support Standards Act (CSSA), which is a federal law that most states follow.
  • If left up to the courts to decide, child support is determined by a formula based upon the gross incomes of the respective parties and the number of children.
  • Sometimes, parties may agree to deviate from the CSSA to come up with a different arrangement to pay child support, as long as the court will approve it.
