Child support is a sticky issue for many people. If you are facing a divorce as the parent who will need support, you know that raising your child will be costly.

Determining Child Support In New Jersey
For the most part, child support is standardized in New Jersey and guidelines are used to calculate an amount. The courts will use these predetermined guidelines to establish the amount of child support to order, based on a percentage of the paying spouse’s net monthly income per child.
Alterations From The Child Support Guidelines
Generally, the court uses the statutory formula for determining child support, but if the child is disabled in some way or if other extraordinary circumstances exist, there is the possibility of convincing the court to deviate from that amount.
Protecting Your Interests And The Interests Of The Children
Whether we are working with clients, the other party’s counsel or judges, We try to keep everyone in the frame of mind that raising a child is costly, and these costs will continue at least until the child is 18 years old or out of school. Protecting the interests of the children and making sure they receive adequate support is one of the most important things I do as a lawyer.
