New Jersey Child Support Guidelines

Child support is one of the issues that a lot of people face in New Jersey and the means in which we calculate child support is done through what is called the New Jersey Child Support Guidelines. It is a software program that we use and the courts use in order to determine what the appropriate amount of child support is and in order to do that we plug in information such as incoming introspective parent.

The importance of the Parenting time schedule

We look at what the parenting time schedule is and how many overnights are spent with one parent versus another, and we use those guidelines as the baseline for child support. There may be reasons that a court would say that child support should be more than what the guidelines are considering because there is an income situation where the parents are above what the guidelines would calculate, but the baseline for child support is established through the New Jersey Child support Guidelines.
