Modifying your child support obligation in New Jersey.

New Jersey Child Support Modification Lawyers

Modifications to child support can be made, even after a divorce is finalized. The needs of the children involved can change with time, like needs in shelter, schooling, food, and health care to name a few. Because needs can change, New Jersey child support laws permit parents to have modifications made to their child support. The parent can request this modification due to increase in need for the child or a change in income from either you or your ex-spouse. Once a need for child support modification has been established, one can file for the modification with the Superior Court. A judge will then make a decision about the modification and make the appropriate adjustments. This could include an increase or decrease in child support payments or even terminated due to the child being emancipated.
