Child Support

The Law Office of Julio E. Portilla, P.C., has detailed knowledge of the New York child support guidelines and how the court uses them to ensure that children of divorce are cared for. A court will not finalize your divorce until the parents have established a plan of child support that adequately covers the living expenses of the child and maintains their standard of living. New York child support payments are based on the principle that a child has the right to be supported by both parents.  Which parent pays child support, and which one receives, is determined by child custody arrangements.  As a parent, you want your children to be minimally impacted by a divorce, allowing them to grow and follow their dreams. Child support is a major factor in ensuring your child’s well-being.

At the Law Office of Julio E. Portilla, P.C., we advocate for your child’s needs to ensure their future is secure.
