Child Support Attorneys in Hackensack
Thorough Guidance for Families throughout Bergen County
No child should suffer financially as a result of his or her parents’ divorce or separation. This very simple concept serves as the foundation for New Jersey’s child support guidelines.
To help all of our clients, our Hackensack lawyers can inform and guide you through a number of issues, including:
- Child Support Guidelines
- What Basic Child Support Covers
- College Contribution
- Child Support Modification
What Are New Jersey’s Child Support Laws?
The stated purpose of the guidelines is to treat children of unformed or broken families the same as those of intact families. This means that in a divorce or separation context, both parents will be called upon to share in all of a child’s needs, from the basic needs to the extraordinary needs, and from infancy through college, and sometimes beyond.
