As an experienced Bergen County Child Support Attorney I am often asked how child support is determined. Child support in New Jersey is governed by the New Jersey Child Support Guidelines. In order to determine the amount of child support, we need take varying information and put it into the guidelines. Such information includes both party’s income, the amount of alimony if applicable, any health insurance cost for the children, and very importantly, the parenting time schedule between the two parents.
