Buffalo Child Support Lawyer Clarifies Child Emancipation
As an accomplished Buffalo Child Support Lawyer I am consistently asked about child emancipation. You may have heard the term emancipation from either your attorney or the court. That term is used by the court to determine how long child support is going to be paid. Child support is generally paid under New York State law until a child has been deemed emancipated. A child is emancipated under New York State law when they’ve reached 21 or if they’re 18 and have entered the military full time, if they have gotten married, or if they are living separate and apart from the parents and are self-supporting. That may be a discretionary issue for the court to determine whether or not an emancipation has actually occurred, so it’s important to sit down with your attorney and ask the questions that are specific to your case.
