How is Child Support Determined In a New Jersey Divorce?

  • Over the years, there have been computer programs that have been created in order to calculate child support.
  • Child support is a product of income and predominantly the number of overnights you have with your children.
  • If you are a parent that has 104 overnights or more, we use a shared parenting worksheet.
  • In a shared parenting worksheet, the expenses for the child are shifted between parents and as a result, the support is spread out between both parents.
