Child Support law in New Jersey is one of the very few areas of family law where the Court is able to use a very complex formula to determine child support. While the idea of a formula is very simple, the issues that must be addressed as part of that formula are complex and emotionally charged, and tied very closely to custody and parenting time determinations. If you want to learn more, the instructions for using the formula (known as a “Child Support Guidelines Calculation) are part of the New Jersey Court Rules and the explanation of the underlying theory, also part of the Court Rules.
At Martin & Tune, located in Whitehouse, New Jersey, we understand that calculating child support is only a small part of the issue that needs to be addressed. Very often there are issues associated with collection of support (which can sometimes be managed by probation), and that consequences for late or non-payment of support can result in suspension of driving privileges or bench warrants being issued. Likewise, child support may need to be re-calculated from time-to-time, to reflect the changing financial circumstances of the parents.
Our philosophy is that every family is different, and our representation should be tailored to your family’s issues and your family’s best interests. If you’re involved in a child support conflict, Martin & Tune is here to help. Call today to schedule a free consultation.
