Child Support Resources

Child Support Attorneys Morris County, NJ

What Child Support Resources are Available to New Jersey Families?

Child support agreements are commonly made between spouses during a divorce or by unmarried co-parents. Child support payments are meant to provide for children by ensuring that the custodial parent has the necessary funds to pay for food, clothing, shelter, and other essential expenses. In New Jersey, child support agreements are governed by state regulations and the state also provides many useful resources to parents and families.

The child support attorneys of Jacobs Berger have extensive experience helping families with their child support needs in Morris County towns including Madison, Randolph, Denville, East Hanover, Morristown, and across all of Northern New Jersey.
