In New Jersey, divorced parents have a legal obligation to support their children until the children are emancipated. You can find out when a child is considered emancipated by reading my blog here.
Unless both parents agree how the expenses for the children will be shared, the amount of child support for children under the age of 18 is generally determined by the New Jersey Child Support Guidelines.
The appropriate amount of New Jersey child support is generally calculated by using specialized software accessible only to attorneys and the court.
When parents’ incomes exceed a certain level, however, additional child support may be warranted. The court determines any additional amount by considering the factors listed in the New Jersey child support statute.
