Who Pays Child Support In New York: Which Parent is “Non-Custodial?”

23867-time isl

Time is money, at least when figuring out which parent is responsible for paying child support in New York.  As a result, a wealthy parent, who has custody of the children a majority of the time, does not have to pay child support to the other poorer parent.


In the case of Rubin v. Della Sella, though the father was granted custody of a child 56% of the time and the wife 44%, the trial court opined that the mother was not precluded from having the father pay child support.  The Appellate Division reversed the trial court’s decision.


According to the Appellate Court, New York’s child support statute makes it clear that despite any economic disparity between parents, only the "custodial parent," defined as the parent who has the child for the majority of the year, is entitled to receive child support.


In order to identify which parent has the child the majority of the time, the test is to simply count the number of overnights each parent spends with the child.  Since the father had the child 56% of the time, the parties did not have equal time with the child;  the father was the custodial parent and did not have to pay the mother child support.


Income has been the decisive factor in cases where the parties have the children an “equal” amount of time.  It has long been the common law rule that the parent with the higher income was deemed to be the noncustodial parent for child support purposes.


Now, time will tell if parents will now be coming all settlement negotiations with a running tally of their overnights with no one willing to take less than the majority of the overnights.

  1. Thanks for this excellent article. One other thing is that the majority of digital cameras come equipped with a new zoom lens so that more or less of your scene to get included by means of 'zooming' in and out. All these changes in focusing length tend to be reflected in the viewfinder and on big display screen on the back of the actual camera.
  2. A few things i have observed in terms of laptop or computer memory is always that there are specific features such as SDRAM, DDR etc, that must match the specifications of the motherboard. If the personal computer's motherboard is pretty current and there are no operating-system issues, modernizing the ram literally will take under an hour. It's on the list of easiest computer upgrade types of procedures one can envision. Thanks for discussing your ideas.

  14. Ein geeigneter Fellsattel zeichnet sich vor allem insofern aus, dass er ebenso gut für den Gaul wie für den Reitenden ist. Dieser Umstand muss vorrangig der ausschlaggebende Faktor beim Kauf eines Sattels sein. Jetzt könnte man ins Detail einsteigen und exakte Merkmale der einzelnen Varianten ins Auge fassen. Selbstredend spielt auch an dieser Stelle das Alter eine wichtige Rolle. Für die Kleinen eignen sich speziell rutschsichere Fellsattel. Bei Erwachsenen darf jener Punkt nahezu außer Acht gelassen werden. Genauso ausschlaggebend ist natürlich der Komfort des Fellsattels. An dieser Stelle bietet sich insbesondere Lammfell an. Dieser Stoff bzw. dieses Material ist exorbitant angenehm und gleichzeitig schonend fürs Pferd. Ein Fellsattel aus Lammfell ist möglicherweise die beste Lösung die ein Reiter treffen kann. Jedoch liegt dieser Fellsattel ebenfalls in Sachen Kosten deutlich höher als andere.

Hierbei kann die moderne Tragejacke am Wanst ebenso wie am Rücken getragen werden und muss problemlos lediglich übergeworfen werden. Verbindbar mit allen Trageeinlagen wie Tragetüchern. Beachtet werden sollte, dass die Gofuture Tragejacken mit jeglicher Babytrage und sämtlichem Tragetuch tragbar sind, doch keinen Substitut für eine Trage beudeuten. Je nach Belieben kann der Nachwuchs per Trageeinlage oder in Komposition mit einem Tragetuch am Bauch oder auch am Rücken getragen werden und ist auf diese Weise stets vor Wind und Wetter behütet.
