How to Determine Child Support in a Divorce Case
The most important decisions you make in your divorce will involve your children. Determining which parent gets custody, how much child support should be expected from the absent spouse, grandparents’ visitation rights, and other factors will impact your children’s lives dramatically – and yours. Because of this, it is essential to have an experienced lawyer on your side who understands the child custody system in New Jersey and knows how to effectively fight for your rights.
Whether you need to press your case to be the primary custodial parent, or you simply want to ensure maximum visitation time as the non-residential parent, New Jersey family attorney Anthony Carbone can handle all of the proceedings and negotiations. If child abuse, drug addiction, or any other dangers are involved in your case, he can help you fight for sole custody.
Calculating the proper amount of child support will depend on factors like:
- Income level(s)
- Parenting time
- Cost of school and/or child care
- Children from other marriages
The laws that govern child custody and support during and after a divorce are complex. Make sure your child’s best interests and your own rights are protected.
