where online can i find New York state family law statues?

Iv been looking on and can not find any new york state family law statues..i really need a lil help my husband is taking his ex back to court to lower his child support and get visitation, and we can not afford a lawyer so we need to do all the research for court.

Most of family law in NY is not statutory, and it won’t help you a whole lot if you get the statutes…

To get a modification in child support, your husband will have to show a significant change in circumstances..this can be proven by a permanent reduction in his income…Or a permanent increase in the mother’s income..

After you have proven this threshold fact, then child support will be calculated by the statutory format.

Here is a link to NY Domestic relations statutes:

    His income has had to drop drastically or hers increase drastically for a change to occur. In Indiana they won’t change the ordered amount unless it is 20% either way. If he is seeing him a lot you can get a credit for that, if he has court ordered visitation and she’s not allowing it she is in contempt of court. She can get in big trouble for that.

    I once again find myself personally spending a significant amount of time both
    reading and commenting. But so what, it was still worthwhile!
