How to calculate child support in New Jersey

In New Jersey, child support amounts are determined by statutes and guidelines, based on the children's best interests. Though relatively inflexible, child support amounts can often be decreased or increased by an experienced child support attorney.

We can look at questions that can influence the amount of child support to be paid, and work to meet your child support payment goals. Factors include:

  • The determination of each party's income
  • Imputation of income
  • Age of the child/children
  • The impact of overnight visitation on child support
  • Medical insurance costs
  • Existing Court Orders for children born of other relationship

Hidden income sources, self-employment, family-owned businesses and other factors can often make determining actual income difficult or complicated. Child custody arrangements also directly affect child support payments paid and received. We can examine all factors, advocate for your goals in negotiations, mediation and in court, and work to maintain your past lifestyle.
