Helping You Reach A Child Support Agreement Through Negotiation, Mediation Or Litigation
Child support is defined as the basic amount of financial support needed to provide for the health and welfare of a child or children. New Jersey child support and custody laws mandate that each parent be responsible for financially supporting their child or children to ensure that those needs are met.
When divorcing or separating, or if you are part of a nonintact family, it is extremely important that a child support settlement is reached, via negotiation, mediation or trial, that will both protect your children’s needs and your own ability to support yourself.
Understanding New Jersey Child Support Guidelines
Today, in most cases, New Jersey courts use a set of guidelines for child support awards and obligations. However, given the unique set of circumstances regarding each family, there are variables and considerations contained in the New Jersey court rules and case law.
The Importance Of Hiring An Experienced Family Law Attorney
A family law and matrimonial attorney with extensive knowledge in this area of law, one who performs child support calculations on a day-to-day basis, will greatly enhance your ability to increase or decrease your child support award or obligation.
Calculating child support is a skill that is developed over time by the family law attorney, and the adage “practice makes perfect” definitely applies.
