How do you calculate Child Support in NJ?

Child support is calculated from the combined net incomes of the parents. The child support formulas are based on the average amount cohabitating parents spend on their children in New Jersey and seek to replicate that amount for non-cohabiting parents.

First, a gross income is calculated that includes wages, capital gains, bonuses, interest and dividends, government benefits and even gambling winnings. The net income is found by subtracting taxes and other payments from that total.

After net income is determined, the amount a child spends with each parent comes into account. This determines which appendix is used as a baseline for payment. The following may be decided:

  • Non-custodial parents who never, or very rarely, provide overnight housing for the child use the table in Appendix IX-F. This gives a fairly straightforward total after the net income is determined.

  • Co-parenting situations can be a little more difficult to analyze. When non-custodial parents house their child for 28% to 50% of the nights in a year, the worksheet in Appendix IX-D helps determine the amount owed.

Remember that the courts determine the final level of child support that is owed. While guidelines and formulas do exist, they are not definitive rules as every family situation is different.

At What Age Does Child Support End?

The obligation to pay child support ends once they turn 18 years of age, or 19 if the child is still in high school. In some circumstances, a court will have the support continue past those ages if the circumstances deem it appropriate.

Child Support Payment Enforcement

If you are not receiving the child support payments that you are entitled to as a result of a court order, you can take legal measures to secure those payments. You can pursue enforcement of court judgment to make sure the non-custodial parent is making their required payments. Our child support lawyers in NJ can help you with this process.

  • Forever Grateful

    “Professional and absolutely down to earth, Mrs Rosin-Golinder and her knowledgeable staff listened to my needs and crafted a prenuptial agreement that will not only act as a safety net for my business but as piece of mind if thing don’t go as planned. With my first marriage around the corner, my first child on the way and preparing for my first mobilization , it was an amazing feeling to have something I feared and was very very uncertain of, turn out for the best. Thank you is most certainly an understatement but for the sake of expression..... THANK YOU. You definitely have a client for life. Two thumbs up LIZ!!!”

  • Very Highly Competent, Excellent, Compassionate, NJ's Top Attorney

    “I retained her after reading online reviews about her and I am so glad I believed it. I read other client comments and I truly agree with them she is an Exceptional attorney who has helped me to get my kids back to NJ, then got my TRO dismissed in a full blown FRO trial and represented me in my divorce case too. My case was extensively litigious and very volatile. The way Elizabeth handled it was TERRIFIC. She is one of the Attorneys who does not want unnecessary litigation unless the opposing party doesn't want to settle and keeps litigating and we had to go through it. She knows the LAW and very often she is able to read the Judge's mind which I have witnessed in the court order.”

  • Short, Sweet and Thankful

    “All I have to say is this, Elizabeth is an exceptional Lawyer, and in the field of Law, I can tell you she is a game-changer, I came to her in dire need to help me obtain my Daughter through emergency circumstances, the timing was urgent, and in a matter of hours she was able to accomplish custody of my daughter, she had only 2 hours to prepare for our hearing. That's all she needed, as sharp as she is, surprised it took her that long, Ha. This is a person that reminded me that there is a lot of good in this world. If anyone were to read this, I want to assure you that she will exhaust every opportunity and resource to get the job done accordingly. I would highly, HIGHLY, recommend her to anyone in need of Professional. Job Well Done Elizabeth, Zoë and I are very thankful.”

  • Amazing Lawyer!!!

    “Elizabeth was amazing from the very beginning of my divorce process. She not only was clear and prompt in all communication, but also connected with me on a personal level where I felt very comfortable going into all details of my divorce and the reasons why I was getting divorced. I whole heartily recommend her and her team. Not only did she help me through the process, but did so within 4 months! I met her in March and was divorced by June! Thank you so much Liz, you are truly an exceptional lawyer!!”

  • Exceptional Attorney

    “Elizabeth has been representing our family for over a year now in a very sad and complicated custody case that involves the protection of my step daugter. It was a case where the original custody was out of another state. From the day we retained her she's been a godsend. Her motions and arguments reflect the personal interest she takes in every client. She's direct, honest, and very realistic. She's taken us through the temporary emergency custody process...the permanent custody process...and now the child support and contested custody process. She was instrumental in getting the jurisdiction of the child's custody granted to NJ. She has always prepared us for the worst yet we walked out with what we needed to happen each and every time. She's still fighting for this child through this last phase. Elizabeth is a true child advocate it's been apparent since day one. You never know what judges are going to decide but Elizabeth knows the laws, she knows the court room game, she develops a strategy and in my family's eyes she's a top notch attorney. I know one day soon she will climb to the ranks of one of the most powerful family attorneys in this state if she isn't alreay there. She's aggressive, smart, honest and a true talent at what she does.”
