Ocean County Child Support Attorneys

Fighting for Child Support Arrangements Throughout Ocean County

Dealing with child support during a divorce is one of the most contested issues that you will probably face. While some people feel that they can handle this issue themselves, our law firm has seen that most people who go to family court without an attorney usually ends up in disaster. If a person has done this, usually trying to "fix" the child support award with a lawyer after the fact will make the whole situation more expensive than it would have been. It is highly recommended you find a qualified child support attorney who can help you from the beginning. The Toms River attorneys at our law firm have found that many child support calculations are wrong, which means having an attorney on your side can be a great investment that will save you money in the future.

All About Child Support Laws in New Jersey

Once the need for child support has been established, most child support awards are handled in a similar way. Child support, in general, is usually paid weekly from the non-custodial parent to the custodial parent of the child. The amount of that child support payment is not a number that is made up by an Ocean County judge or hearing officer. This figure is determined through a mathematical formula, known as the New Jersey Child Support Guidelines. These guidelines take into account the incomes of both parties, debts and assets being distributed throughout the marriage, the current age of the children, as well as various other figures to come with a final weekly support amount. It is here where having a lawyer on your side is extremely beneficial. Our attorneys at the Law Offices of Jef Henninger, Esq., can help you save money by correcting your child support figures.

How Child Support is Recalculated Due to Changed Circumstances

Situations can change dramatically in life as time goes on and child support awards can become affected. When this happens, it is possible to either raise or lower your child support obligation. This can also be fought for if the other parent has had an increase or decrease in income. In addition, if the last child support calculation was more than three years ago, you may be entitled to a new calculation even if there has not been any change of income or circumstances from either parent. Talking to a highly skilled family court attorney to discuss your child support case is in your best interest to make sure the calculations are correct and current. Call our 24/7 hotline anytime, even on nights and weekends, to speak with one of our Ocean County divorce lawyers for free and with no obligation.
