If you are a parent going through a divorce, one of your primary concerns is most likely the welfare of your children.

Factors That Are Used to Calculate Child Support in New Jersey
For the most part, the amount of child support paid is determined by the New Jersey child support guidelines. There are many different factors within these guidelines that judges use to arrive at the amount of child support you will pay or receive. Some criteria include:
- The number of children
- The income of both parents
- The number of overnights spent with each parent
- The cost of medical insurance
- The cost of day care
- Special needs costs
- Child support obligations for children from other relationships
Each family has different needs. I am sensitive to those needs, and am committed to being a strong advocate for my clients in pursuit of their interests and the best interests of their children. Whether you have small children or your children are in college, I have the experience needed to advocate for what they are entitled to receive. Using negotiation, mediation or litigation, I can handle your case at every phase of the legal process.
