Unless each parent makes roughly the same amount of money and both parents receive nearly equal parenting time, one parent will need to pay child support to the other. Though child support payments are designed to meet the needs of children, the amount and frequency of these payments are common sources of conflict between parents. A parent may fail to make payments or a parent may feel that the amount is too much or too little.

New Jersey's Child Support Guidelines Determine The Amount Of Support
In our state, child support is calculated using a set of guidelines. Judges must consider many factors when they apply the guidelines to your family. Some of the things that will be considered are the:
- The age of each child
- The health care needs of each child
- The income of each parent
- The earning potential of each parent
- The educational needs of each child
This list is certainly not exhaustive; there are many other variables to consider. Our role as family law attorneys is to gather full and accurate information about your family and your finances to present to the judge. Whether you are obligated to pay child support or will be the one receiving it, The Cody Law Firm will present your case effectively so the judge can make a proper determination.
