  • revision in child support New York

    My 16 year old son has come to live with me and my 18 year old daughter still lives with her mother. I currently pay support to the children's mother for both. Can someone help give me direction on how I can get this modified and also with 2 children does support continue to be paid to the mother if one child is with each parent. Thank you

    I may not have been clear on my question. Now that one child lives with each of the parents, how does child support work? It would seem as though my obligation would be lessen as I now have my son with me. Thoughts?

    age of emancipation in new york is 21 yrs. old.....you could have the mom stop the order if not then you have to get custody of your son and then have it dropped....

      If your 16 year old daughter came to live with you, you need to file for a change of custody. Then, you can get a child support order of your own.

      NY requires support after 18 by default, I think up until 21 if they go to college. You would have to prove the 18 year old is self supporting. But a modification is defenitely in order for this poster. He will just need to file with the county where the order is issued.
