Child Support Lawyers Serving New Jersey Clients

In New Jersey, if you are a parent, regardless of marital status, you are obligated to contribute to the support of your children. Going into family court without proper legal representation may lead to disaster and more expenses than you previously anticipated. Hiring a good attorney from the start will save you money in the long run.

Child Support Payment Calculations

Child support is usually paid in weekly payments from the non-custodial parent to the custodial parent to provide basic needs for the child. This payment amount is not made up by a judge or hearing officer. The child support figure is calculated from a mathematical formula, known as the New Jersey Child Support Guidelines. The New Jersey Child Support Guidelines take into consideration income, amount of parenting time and other factors to reach at the weekly support figure.

Changed Circumstances

We all have experienced changing of circumstances as life goes on. If you have had a change of income, you may be able to lower your child support payment. And on the other side, if the other parent has had a recent increase of income, you might be able to receive more in child support payments. Once three years have passed, you may be entitled to another calculation under the New Jersey Child Support Guidelines, even if income amount has not changed for either parent.
