Making Sure Your Children Get The Financial Support They Need

Legal matters involving children can arise due to a divorce or outside of a divorce case if the parents were not married or if they have been divorced for some time. One of the most important legal issues regarding children is child support. Both legal parents have the duty to financially support their children, and this often means that one parent should pay support to the other to help cover the expenses and basic needs of a child. In New Jersey, child support is calculated by a specific formula that takes into consideration each parent’s income, expenses and custodial responsibilities. Our child support lawyers can review and evaluate any child support determinations to ensure that they are fair and can request a modification of an existing order if needed.

Our Attorneys Handle Child Custody And Parenting Plans

Courts in New Jersey determine custody and visitation rights of parents based on the “best interests of the child.” Best interests can involve many factors, including:

  • Other practical concerns, such as job schedules, travel and more
  • The ability of the parents to cooperate and communicate
  • Emotional needs
  • Geographical location of the homes
  • Physical safety and health
  • The child’s relationship with each parent

Even if two parents agree on a custody and visitation arrangement, the arrangement must be reviewed by the court to ensure that it is in the best interests of the child before it can be approved. In addition, if there are questions regarding the safety of the child, including criminal charges, a case may be further complicated if child protective services gets involved.
