Morris County Child Support Attorney

Child support is a monthly payment that one parent makes to the other parent to help finance the cost of living expenses and activities for their children. Child support can be a hotly disputed area of a contested divorce case, and with the help of a Morris County divorce lawyer you can fight for an amount of child support that is fair to you and your children. When the court is looking to decide which parent pays support they assess a number of factors, such as the following:

  • Each parties earning capacity
  • Their current income
  • What the needs of the child will be
  • The health of both parties
  • The number of children each parent has
  • The time spent with the child by each parent
  • The parents ability to work together
  • Daily living expenses
  • Other related factors

Calculating Child Support Payments

New Jersey runs off of an income shares model for calculating support and this means that the income of both parents will be reviewed when deciding upon the amount. For parents of an average income, child support is calculated using the New Jersey Child Support Guidelines, which take into account many factors of your particular situation. Generally, the parent who has primary child custody, that is, the child spends more nights with this parent, and this parent is responsible for the primary financial burden of the child will receive a monthly payment from the parent that does not have primary custody to help finance the various expenditures of the child.

A parent that does not have custody rights will not automatically mean that they are also excused from the obligation of paying support. An online child support calculator can help provide more of an estimate of what a payment is likely to be. These will be paid each month and generally end once the child reaches the age of 18. In some situations there may be reason for payments to continue, such as a child that is attending college. In many cases, after a child support agreement is reached, a post judgment motion may be in order if circumstances change and one parent suddenly finds that he or she cannot pay as much as they were previously paying, or vice versa.
