Child Support Confusion: Percentage of what!?

In New York, child support is calculated by using a percentage of the parents combined income.

Seems simple enough, no?  Not really.  Most people want to know what is the percentage they need to pay.  But it's not that simple.  If you re-read the definition, "a percentage of the parents combined income", you can see many ambiguities.  

For example, what is income? Is it gross? Is it net? Is it my second job? Or what does "combined" mean?  What if you do not work, or the other parent does not work? or the parent works but gets paid in cash?  

Even the word "parent" can be ambiguous.  Can a grandparent collect? Can the father who is not named on the birth certificate collect or be sued for child support.  

The possibilities in interpretation of child support laws are endless, quite frankly.  There is no good reason to go to court without a lawyer.

Latin Vision - Spotlight on Tu Abogado Del Pueblo

Take a look at attorney Victor M Urbaez spotlight on the Latin Vision website as a Hispanic Entrepreneur.

Here is a quick blurb from the interview: 

Tell us about three entrepreneurs that you admire?

I can think of 1: The lady on the corner that sells habichuelas dulces.  I think she gets more for her money in terms of profit and expensive then 95% of businesses out there.   Lines are blocks long and there is very little overhead.  It’s a sweet business!
