Practice Area: Family
Outcome: Order directing cancellation of pre-application child support arrears.
Description: Despite New York’s statutory prohibitions prohibiting courts from cancelling pre-application child support arrears, our client’s arrears were vacated, in their entirety, based on the Court’s determination that there were extreme and unique circumstances. This case is one of only two instances in which a New York court has cancelled pre-application arrears.
