Determining Child Support Amounts in South Jersey

New Jersey uses the “income shares” method of determining child support. This means that the level of support will be based on the income of both parents combined. To determine the amount to be paid in child support, there are a number of predetermined factors outlined by New Jersey Statutes 2A:34-23.

These factors include:

  • The child’s needs
  • Each parent’s standard of living
  • Each parent’s assets and income
  • Each parent’s, and the child’s, health and age

There could be several other factors that determine the amount of court-ordered child support as well. After careful review of your case, we can better determine what additional elements might be factors into your calculations.
