How Much Will My Child Support Payment Be?

Calculating your child support payment is dependent on several factors. In the state of New Jersey, there are Child Support Guidelines that must be taken into consideration before coming up with a final support amount. Factors such as the income of each parent, the age of the child, and if alimony is being paid, are all used within the courts’ calculation. Once the calculation has been determined, it is considered to be the final child support payment.

While there are numerous online calculators for child support out there, none of these can really give a true final amount. Meeting with a child support attorney and going over your unique situation, will give you a more accurate estimate on your child support payment. And if you feel your child support payments need to be recalculated, either due to a change in income, parenting time or its been over three years since your last calculation, a professional family law attorney will help you get the results you need.

At the Law Office of Jennifer Marshall, Esq., our law firm works hard to give our clients the best child support estimate possible.
