Every case involving a child, regardless of the parties’ financial backgrounds, will address the issue of child support. Several factors are taken into account in determining a child support Order. Those factors can include the finances of each party, the custody/parenting time Order between the parties, the medical expenses for the children, and the cost of work-related childcare. Child support cases can be overwhelming to the parties as they will now have to manage the changing needs of what used to be one household dividing into two separate households. The State of New Jersey has implemented guidelines with regard to the calculation and payment of child support. Although the guidelines are a starting point, there are other factors that may affect the outcome of a child support calculation.
