Child Support Attorneys in Newark

New Jersey Child Support Lawyers

Child support orders require parents to provide financial support for the children they have brought into the world. When a parent lives outside the home, that parent — known as the non-custodial parent - pays child support to the custodial parent. Both parents are expected by the law to contribute financially to their child's well-being and upbringing.

When Parents are Divorced, Separated or Unmarried

Contact our Newark child support lawyers at Ehrlich, Petriello, Gudin, Plaza & Reed, Attorneys at Law to schedule a consultation regarding child support. You may be approaching divorce, divorced already and need to pursue child support modification, or an unmarried parent who needs legal counsel to obtain child support from the other parent.

Child Support Guidelines Are Just That: Guidelines

The state child support guidelines are pretty straightforward. Child support is calculated based on parents' respective incomes and the amount of time that a child spends with each parent (custody and parenting time). But other factors may be involved, such as when a child has special needs because of a medical condition or a learning disability requiring tutoring or therapy.

Have You or the Other Parent Had a Change in Income or Circumstances?
