        Michael has helped me tremendously.  I’ve been going through a divorce for over a year now and he’s be there every step of the way.  If I needed to contact him out of business hours, he always answers right away or calls back in a timely manner.  My divorce was and still is very stressful.  He has kept me cool and calm the whole time.  I’ve had a lot of anxiety that he took away.  Very detailed and very relaxed person.  Made me feel so much more confident than I was before I stepped into his office.

        The basic child obligation is determined through the New York Child Support Guidelines, which provides a formula based on both parents’ adjusted gross Income. A fixed percentage of the noncustodial parent’s adjusted income serves as the base for the child support payment, with the exact percentage varying by the number of children to be supported. Child support is expressed as a dollar amount, together with a share of day care expenses and a portion of unreimbursed medical expenses.

        In many cases, the guidelines amount will represent the actual child support to be paid or received. Our Rochester Child Support Attorney will let you know whether any special circumstances might justify an upward or downward adjustment in child support in your case. A judge can adjust the obligation in either direction, but needs specific reasons to do so.

        Until very recently, New York child support obligations were determined on adjusted gross income up to $80,000. The upper limit of income has been raised to $130,000. For many people paying or receiving child support limited under the old income limit, there’s a good chance you’ll be entitled to receive increased child support, or that you’ll be asked to make a bigger payment. Our experience with either side of child support modification issues can give you an advantage toward understanding the impact of the new Income limits.

        “Mike will end all your distrust and annoyance associated with legal proceedings. He handled my divorce and did an amazing job keeping it out of court and getting me what I wanted. He was there to talk to the whole time and made me feel he was on my side by his comments and advice. He is now representing my girlfriend for her custody battle and he was the only lawyer we would contact to handle the case. He is truly a good person which is hard to find with people associated with the law in this country. Thank you Mike for everything you have done for me and for everything you are doing for my girlfriend.”
