How Is Child Support Calculated In New Jersey?
In any marital dissolution litigation or divorce mediation, you must go through the process of calculating child support. Child support payments are established strictly to benefit the children, to account for the costs of a wide range of necessities including food, clothes and medical care. In all cases, we make sure to get exactly what the children need.
Modifications And Enforcement Of Child Support Orders
- Modifications: A modification can be made to a child support agreement if the person paying has a change in his or her financial situation that is substantial enough to warrant a change in his or her child support obligation. Our lawyers can help people with legitimate reasons for modifications. However, sometimes people try to avoid paying support by, for example, losing a job on purpose. In those situations, our lawyers will gladly fight any invalid attempts by a parent to deprive their kids of support.
- Enforcement: When a parent neglects to pay child support, an attorney can get a court order demanding payment. If the parent ignores a court order and exhibits a complete disregard for his or her obligation to pay child support, he or she can end up in jail. However, this is often unnecessary and usually the intervention of a lawyer is sufficient.
