child support following a
divorce or otherwise can be a complex undertaking, but it is also an important
component of your financial well-being. There are several factors taken
into consideration during this process, some of which are the same in
every case and some of which may be unique to your particular situation.
In order to ensure child support awarded in your case is accurate, appropriate
for the needs of your child, and feasible for all parties involved, it
is crucial you have a skilled attorney who can walk you through the process
step by step.
You can estimate child support in the following ways:
- Child support can be calculated according to the New Jersey Child Support
Guidelines. These guidelines require an examination of the income of both
parents and submission of either a Sole Parenting Worksheet or Shared
Parenting Worksheet, and are applicable to cases where parents wish to
establish or modify child support. You can use these worksheets to calculate
child support and estimate what payments may look like in your case.
In addition to using the worksheets to estimate the amount of child support
a judge might order, you can also use an
online calculator provided by the state’s Department of Human Services.
Estimating the amount of support that may be awarded in your case can be
helpful, but it is no substitute for working with experienced lawyers
who can help you better understand what to expect, how to protect your
rights, and what you can do to secure a positive outcome. When additional
matters are involved, including
child custody, visitation,
high net worth, working with seasoned legal representation becomes even more important.
