How to find apartment rent market value for calculation of NYC child support

Asked over 1 year ago - New York, NY

A father paying child support is a super and gets free rent. It is counted as income based on the value of his apartment.

However, he is low balling the market value. How could we get our own figure as to how much rent his apartment would go for, and not be basing it on his own figure given?

    Answered . A real estate appraiser can probably help you with this. They should be able to do a market analysis and compare rents of other similar apartments/buildings in the area. You will have to call the appraiser as an expert witness to admit the report into evidence unless he agrees. You may want to consider hiring an attorney to do the hearing
