New law changes regarding child support termination in New Jersey

On February 1, 2017, law changes went into effect regarding the termination of child support in New Jersey under NJSA 2A:17-56.67, et al. While New Jersey has long Child-Support.jpgbeen a state where child support can continue after a child reaches the age of 18, the new law created a cap of age 23 on child support orders enforced through Probation. 

Parent's College Contribution

As experienced New Jersey custody and support attorneys, we frequently have clients come to our firm on the difficult issue of college contributions. In New Jersey, unlike many states, not only can the Court compel divorced or separated parents to continue contributing to their children's support after the children are 18 years old, the Court can also compel the parents to contribute to the (often substantial) cost of college, should a child have the capability to attend. Not infrequently, a parent will inform us that he or she has little to no relationship with their child, and ask if they will still have to contribute to college.

However, if the stress is caused by a legal issue, it is certainly prudent and advisable to obtain information and advice from an attorney.

Because the process can be disorienting, our Lehigh Valley Children and Youth Attorneys have put together a step-by-step outline of this process for you:
