Child Support in New Jersey
Under New Jersey law, both parents are responsible for financially supporting their children. In determining child support in New Jersey, the method of "income shares" is used. This means that the basis of child support is the combined income of both parents. If the child support payments and schedule cannot be resolved by the parents, then the court will make a decision on the matter based on a number of factors. These factors may include the needs of the child, the standard of living established by the parents, the parents' financial circumstances, the income sources for both parents, the earning power of the parents based on their education, training, work experience, work skills, and their responsibilities for child care, the ages and health of both parents and children, their debts and liabilities, and other factors.
