Lili to speak on Child Support “Challenges and Options”


On May 25 Lili is co-presenting with Attorney Mediator Jill Sanders-DeMott at the Family and Divorce Mediation Council of Greater NY (FDMC).
Their talk is titled, “CHILD SUPPORT AND MAINTENANCE PRIMER: CHALLENGES AND OPTIONS” and will include:

  • Basic refresh on the Child Support Standards Act (CSSA) and Maintenance
  • Budgets vs. CSSA and Maintenance formulas, which do people introduce  first when explaining everything to the clients?
  • How do we work in “above the cap income” into the CSSA and Maintenance calculations and discussions? (plug additional amount into formula? what other ways?)
  • Determining “CSSA gross income” and “Maintenance formula” income for non-W2 earners?
  • Building in flexibility/modification methods—when is flexible too flexible?
  • Tax ramifications of structuring Maintenance and Child Support and how is Child Support impacted when Maintenance ends?
