Determining Child Support in the State of New Jersey

In New Jersey, the right to receive child support is the right of the child, not the parent. All parents in this state are obligated to contribute to the support of their children, regardless of their marital status. The amount each parent must contribute is dependent on several factors.

In most cases, the child support obligation of a parent is calculated using the NJ child support guidelines. Certain expenses are included in the child support guidelines, such as clothing and entertainment, and others are not. Different factors that may be considered when using the child support guidelines are:

  • Gross income of the parties
  • Overnight parenting time
  • Health care premiums
  • The age of the children
  • Whether a parent has children from other relationships
  • Union dues paid

An experienced professional can help you understand your rights and obligations and can offer guidance regarding the appropriate child support award in your case. Contact Gabriella Ferri, Esquire for a free consultation.

Family Law & Divorce

We understand that family law matters can be highly emotional, and that different solutions work for different clients.

Many people have the idea that when we file a lawsuit, we are suing the person. We are not. We are suing the insurance company that the person has been paying to protect them against a loss like this. The insurance company that this person has been paying for quite some time.
