The amount of child support that is to be paid is usually set by child support guidelines and decided by a formula. If one spouse has a very significant income, the formula varies and the court has more discretion in determining child support.
When it comes to spousal maintenance (commonly called alimony or spousal support), New York courts don't use a strict formula. The amount can vary depending on the spouses' ages, incomes, employment opportunities and other factors.

Joan Iacono uses professionals to help maximize the results for her family law clients. When representing those who are seeking support, she knows how to uncover and exploit hidden sources of income.
