New Jersey Child Support Attorney
The Law Offices of Gregg Rubenstein can help you with your New Jersey Child support legal matters. Our office is located in East Brunswick, New Jersey. Child support is more than just money. The goal to child support is to have children grow up to be responsible adults but them getting the support they need. This is done by both parents giving a child a safe place to live, clothes on their back and enough food to eat. Furthermore, other types of support such as financial, emotional support and medical support.
When divorcing, separating, or if you are part of a non-intact family, it is extremely important that a child support settlement is reached. In such a way that will both protect your children’s needs and your own ability to support yourself. Reaching settlement can be accomplished through negotiations, mediation or an application to the Court.
The parent who is receiving child support (payee parent) is expected to pay the following expenses from the child support that is paid to them by the paying parent (payer parent). Examples are housing, food, clothing, transportation. Also, unreimbursed health care up to and including $250 per child per year, entertainment and miscellaneous.
The following factors may require an adjustment (often a reduction) to the payer parent’s basic child support obligation:
Other legal dependents, child support orders for other children. Also, Social Security benefits paid to or for the child, adjustments for overnight parenting time.
