How is Child Support Calculated in New Jersey?

Specific guidelines established by the state guides child support calculations in New Jersey. These guidelines take into account various factors, including but not limited to:

  • Income of both parents: The courts consider the income of both parents, including wages, salaries, bonuses, commissions, and other sources of income. Providing accurate and up-to-date financial information is essential to ensure a fair calculation.
  • Parenting time: The amount of time each parent spends with the child also plays a role in determining child support. The more parenting time a noncustodial parent has, the lower their child support obligation may be.
  • Child-related expenses: Additional expenses related to the child's healthcare, education, daycare, and extracurricular activities are also considered when calculating child support.
  • Number of children: Child support calculations will vary based on the number of children involved. The more children there are the higher the child support obligation.

Our skilled Englewood child support lawyer has extensive experience navigating the intricacies of child support calculations. We work closely with our clients, ensuring that all relevant information is considered and accurately presented to achieve a fair and just outcome.

What Age Do You Stop Paying Child Support in New Jersey?

Child support obligations typically end when a child reaches the age of emancipation. In New Jersey, the age of emancipation is generally 19 years old unless there are extenuating circumstances such as the child's physical or mental disability. However, child support can be extended beyond the age of emancipation if the child is attending college or another educational institution full-time. It is essential to consult with an experienced child support attorney to understand how these factors may apply to your specific situation.

What Happens if a Father Doesn't Pay Child Support?

Child support payments are legally binding, and failure to meet these obligations can have significant consequences. If a father does not pay child support as ordered by the court, the custodial parent has legal options to enforce the child support order. Some possible actions include:

  • Wage garnishment: The court may order the non-paying parent's wages to be garnished, meaning a portion of their income is automatically deducted to satisfy the child support obligation.
  • Liens and asset seizure: In cases of persistent non-payment, the court may place liens on the non-paying parent's property or even seize their assets to satisfy the child support debt.
  • License suspension: A non-paying parent's driver's or professional license may be suspended if they continuously fail to meet their child support obligations.
  • Contempt of court: A non-paying parent can be held in contempt of court for willful disobedience of a child support order, which may result in fines, penalties, or even imprisonment.
