Child Support in New Jersey
As stated above, the children come first! You want what’s best for your children and this includes making sure they receive the support they need for important things like food, shelter, and regular living expenses. You also want to know that you are not required to pay more than your fair share. You want an experienced lawyer to guide you through the child support process when it comes to best protecting your interests, I can help.
In New Jersey, the amount of child support to be paid is determined by a series of legal guidelines. The complete text covers more than 100 pages of legal language, as well as complex charts. These guidelines are available in law libraries, courthouses, and on the Internet, but it takes a lawyer with experience and background to help you understand them in light of case law and other factors.
I and my team will carefully review any proposed child support order for compliance with New Jersey guidelines, verifying that all relevant income from both parties is included in the calculation. I can also assist you with requests for modification of an existing child support order should the income of either party increase or decrease substantially.
At the office of attorney Joseph P. Howard, I have fought for the rights of men and women in Camden County, Burlington County, Gloucester County, Salem County and Atlantic County, Voorhees, Cherry Hill and the greater Philadelphia area for more than 30 years. With more than three decades of legal experience handling legal disputes, including divorce and family law matters, I have comprehensive knowledge of the laws and procedures governing divorce and family law, including requests for modification.
