Child Support

All children are entitled to support from both parents. However, each family comes with their own set of needs and circumstances. Though the New Jersey Child Support Guidelines are most commonly used to establish child support, each family should properly assess all of their circumstances to ensure that their children are appropriately cared for. A request for support for children should include a request for their general needs, but also their more specific needs such as medical, educational and extracurricular expenses. Day care or before/after care expenses should also be addressed. Please note that child support is also a bit different when children enter college.
