Schwartz Hunter, PC provides legal representation in matters related to the determination of child support in divorce matters, in matters between parents that were not married, and in matters where there has been a change in circumstance requiring a change to a previously entered order of child support.
The child support guidelines set forth in the New Jersey Court Rules govern the calculation of child support in general. These guidelines may be modified by the court when good cause to do so is established. In cases where income exceeds the maximum amount provided for in the guidelines, the guidelines will not apply and the court will conduct an analysis based on the needs of the children according to their particular circumstances. The guidelines also do not apply to children that are 18 years or older who are no longer enrolled in high school or secondary education. At such time as a child attends college and no longer lives at home, a court may consider a reduction in child support. The guidelines also take into consideration the allocation of expenses due to parenting time. Schwartz Hunter, PC is experienced in navigating the nuances in child support calculations.
