In New Jersey, parents must financially support their child until the child is emancipated, which can be after the time that the child turns 18 or graduates from high school. Child support is the right of the child and both parents have a duty of support. Nevertheless, one of the most contested matters in family law cases is resolving the amount of child support to be paid from one parent to the other. New Jersey has developed guidelines that help establish the amount of child support that must be paid. The Child Support Laws are written to protect children of divorce from economic despair. Children of divorced, separated and never married parents have the right to be financially supported by both of their parents through their launch into adulthood and both parents have a legal obligation to support their children at a level based on their income.

Child support is calculated using the parents’ combined income and takes into consideration the child’s needs, the parents’ earning ability and economic circumstances, and the age and health of the child and parents. Even though there are statutory guidelines, a judge has the authority to deviate from these guidelines based on the specifics of the situation. Once a presumptive payment is determined, deviations can be made based on several factors, including:

•Travel expenses for parents who live out of state

•The costs of day care

•Healthcare costs, including insurance premiums

•Educational expenses

•Costs for extracurricular activities

•Parenting time
