New York Child Support Calculator | Guidelines

By Staff – Last updated

The New York Child Support calculator is a worksheet you can use to estimate the amount of child support you may owe (or may be owed).  The amount calculated will just be an estimate. The court may come up with a different amount based on your particular circumstances.

How to Calculate

Step 1: Download the worksheet

Step 2: Enter your Annual Income
Step 3: Check the guidelines to obtain your Approximate Basic Child Support Obligation
Step 4: Subtract the Approximate Basic Support Obligation from the Annual Income
Step 5: If the amount is greater than or equal to $15,890 (the 2015 self-support reserve) enter the amount on line 7 of the worksheet – this is the basic support obligation
Step 6: If the amount is less than $15,890 (the 2015 self-support reserve) but greater than or equal to $11,770 (the 2015 poverty income guideline amount for a single person), proceed to step 4.
Step 7: If the amount is less than $11,770 (the 2015 poverty income guideline amount for a single person), enter $300 on line 7 on the worksheet. No further calculations are necessary.
