New Jersey child support guidelines outline how child support is to be calculated. In many cases, these guidelines can be followed exactly. In others, deviations may be required based on unique circumstances or parents' high incomes. Even when deviations are unnecessary, it is important that an experienced lawyer review all calculations to ensure that all information being entered is complete and that the outcome is fair.
At the Joseph A. Fortunato Law Offices, our lawyers bring more than 30 years of experience to child support cases related to divorce or paternity actions. We are dedicated to the pursuit of justice and excellence.
Issues That Can Affect Child Support Awards
We understand how certain issues can impact an award of child support, such as the presence of children from outside relationships. Child custody and parenting time arrangements may also have an impact on payments. We are comprehensive in reviewing the situation to make certain that nothing that could impact child support is overlooked.
When appropriate, we will also take into account unique costs such as those associated with medical or educational needs, including college expenses, the cost of summer camp and other extracurricular activities the child may participate in.
Modification and Enforcement of Child Support Awards
As circumstances change, child support payments may need to change as well. We can assist with child support modifications. We can also assist parents in cases involving enforcement of child support and recovery of past due child support payments.
