Child Support Bullet Guide (Part 5): Support Orders, Incorrect Income Executions and Written Objections

Child support law is often more complicated than people realize. Although guidelines exist to assist courts in determining how much support needs to be delivered to a custodial parent after a divorce, that doesn’t make awarding support simple.

There are many factors that the courts will consider when determining how much support to award to a custodial parent. In some cases, it may be necessary to consider a different level of child support, because the child has specific needs to be addressed. This child support guide will help to answer some of the questions you may have about child support.

This part of the guide examines incorrect income executions, support orders, and written objections regarding child support amounts and payments.

Wrong Data on an Income Execution for Child Support

The information we’re looking at here differs slightly to filing written objections to support orders. You can find further information detailed on this below.

In a family law case that involves parents not connected by marriage, and at times when divorce occurs between two parents, the magistrate or judge must always act in the best interests of the children or child in question. To make decisions about things like child support, the judge will consider all the information available bout the couple, including their incomes, the circumstances, and the life of the child.

  • Spousal and child support decisions have a huge impact on everyone involved in a support or divorce case. However, it’s sometimes possible for an income execution to contain the wrong information, leading to the wrong amount of support being awarded. In these circumstances, the New York courts support the person negatively affected by the issue to address the mistake with the court.
  • If the party that has been negatively affected by the order brings the “mistake of fact” document to an attorney and the court, it will be examined. Depending on the case in question, a lawyer like Mr. Shapiro might need to assist a client in filing an objection with the local court that offers jurisdiction over the support collection or case unit.
  • When someone makes an objection, they will be encouraged and permitted to deliver evidence supporting their claim that a mistake was made. Mr. Shapiro offers advice to clients on the kind of evidence that may be useful in these cases.
Support Magistrates and Child Support Objections

Child Playing With Cubes Family law is a complex area, particularly when children are involved in the dissolution of a marriage. Cases that address issues like spousal support and child support can easily become overwhelming. These cases of support usually initiate when petitions filed with the family court of New York begin. Family court cases are often assigned to support magistrates.

  • Child support magistrates are the professionals responsible for determining how spousal and child support should be delivered in a case. These professionals can deliver all kinds of support according to the guidelines delivered by the Family Court and Uniform Interstate Support acts.
  • The support case magistrate can sometimes issue summons, decide on motions, and deliver subpoenas according to the guidelines of section 153 of the Act for Family Court law. These professionals can also decide on outcomes for laws in civil practice.
  • In cases of child support, and in cases that take place before the support magistrate, Darren Shapiro reminds his clients that the rules of evidence still apply. This means that the magistrate can direct parties in the case to disclose pieces of information.
  • The determination of support to be paid in a child support order will need to include information on findings of fact as well as the final order issued to both parties in the case. If one or both of the parties don’t agree with the order, they can get in touch with an attorney like Mr. Shapiro and serve written objectives within 30 days of the order delivery.
  • Parties involved in child support cases which make objections on the final order must deliver a copy of the objections and any valuable information on the case to the other party. This can be done in a range of ways. When the information reaches the other party, they will have a total of 13 days that they can use to deliver a response to the objections addressed in the documentation.
  • When people are awaiting the reviews of objections issued in a child support case, the order given by the magistrate generally stays in effect. However, when new orders are issued, there is a possibility that the payments made by the person giving the money that exceed the required amount will be attributed to future payments.

If you have questions or concerns about the information addressed above, you can find plenty of additional guidance on this website in the form of guides, blogs, and articles. It’s also possible to reach out to Mr. Shapiro if you believe you would like to discuss your own case for child support, or objections against a child support order. Free initial consultations of up to 30 minutes are available. You can reach out through the available contact form or connect with us on the phone to get on our calendar for your consultation.
