Hi, I'm trained and experienced in family law, and I would love to help you through your current situation.
"Except as provided in subdivision two of this section, the parents of a child under the age of twenty-one years are chargeable with the support of such child and, if possessed of sufficient means or able to earn such means, shall be required to pay for child support a fair and reasonable sum as the court may determine. The court shall make its award for child support pursuant to the provisions of this subdivision. The court may vary from the amount of the basic child support obligation determined pursuant to paragraph (c) of this subdivision only in accordance with paragraph (f) of this subdivision."
That's the relevant law.
Yes you can.
It stands for "FAMILY COURT ACT"
Is there anything else I can assist you with?
If not, please give me a good rating for answering your question, so I will be compensated for my work.
It should, assuming what he needs is the relevant law.
If he needs other information, come back and I can answer anything else you might need to know.
Each underwriter will require different information, so it's impossible to know for sure.
But, that's the relevant law.
2. Nothing in this article shall impose any liability upon a person to support the adopted child of his or her spouse, if such child was adopted after the adopting spouse is living separate and apart from the non-adopting spouse pursuant to a legally recognizable separation agreement or decree under the domestic relations law. Such liability shall not be imposed for so long as the spouses remain separate and apart after the adoption.
It has to do with adoption.
It's not entirely relevant.
Do you have any further questions?
I'd be happy to answer any questions you might have.

Until the 21st Birthday.
The law reads under 21 - meaning until 21.
Does that make sense?
You are most welcome; please rate me before you leave.
... so I will be compensated for my work.
Are you having difficulty rating me?
If so, I would be happy to explain the process.
... or, is there anything else I can answer for you before you leave the forum?
... as a last reminder, please rate me, so I will be compensated for my work. Thank you.
