NJ Child Support

NJ Child Support

NJ Child Support is a legal obligation for a parent to financially support their child regardless of whether the parents are divorced, legally separated or no longer live with one another.  As part of a divorce or separation agreement, child custody, visitation, alimony and child support will be settled and approved by the court. If you have a child but are not married to, or are no longer in a relationship with the other parent, child support must still be paid. In such a circumstance, paternity may have to be determined in order to prove that child support is due.

NJ Child Support is calculated by using the Child Support Worksheet.  Generally, the last three pay stubs are used to determine that parties income.  Many other circumstances affect the amount of child support such as child support orders from another relationship, medical insurance payments, child care…etc.  The New Jersey Rules of Court Appendix IX-A provides a comprehensive look at issues that should be considered when calculating the child support amount.  If you are currently paying child support, and there are changes in your circumstances, a modification of support may be warranted. No matter the reason, we urge you to consult Armour Law to ensure optimum results.
