Child Support New Jersey Family Law

Child Support Lawyers in Morristown

Child support is a vital part of family law and is designed to ensure that your child receives the care and the financial support they need to thrive. While child support is usually calculated based on the parents' income, the court can take other factors into consideration as well. Alimony can be taken into consideration, as well as the cost of health insurance and daycare. 

If you need help enforcing or modifying your child support agreement, contact Eveland & Foster, LLC. today by calling (973) 841-8856.

How Is Child Support Calculated in New Jersey?

In New Jersey, child support is calculated based on the parents' incomes and other expenses. The court will take into consideration the cost of daycare, medical insurance, and other expenses. Parents must provide their own financial information to the court, and the court will assign a support amount based on the parents' incomes. The parent who has the child during the week must provide health insurance, and the parent who only has the child on the weekends must pay for daycare.

How Long Do I Have to Enforce Child Support?

You can enforce child support at any time. However, if you are asking the court to modify the child support agreement, you must have a substantial change in circumstances. For example, if your income has decreased or your child is now in daycare and the child support agreement did not take this into consideration. You can also ask the court to modify the child support agreement if your child has special needs that the parents did not take into consideration when they agreed on the amount of child support.
