Child Support: Getting Orders That Are Fair

In New Jersey, child support guidelines use a formula to calculate each parent's child support obligations. The formula takes into consideration each parent's income, the number of children and the custody arrangement. While this approach may work for some families, it does not take into consideration your children's unique needs. The guidelines also may not apply if one or both parents is a high earner, or have a college student who no longer resides full time with either parent.

Who pays for tutors and other educational needs? Who pays for extracurricular activities, like music lessons or sports? Who pays for health care and dental care? What about college costs?

At Weinberg & Cooper, LLC, our lawyers help clients secure child support arrangements that accurately reflect their children's needs, their lifestyle and their financial position.

Helping You Get A Fair Child Support Order

Money and children — these are two hot-button issues for most couples. Child support disagreements involve both of these aspects and can quickly turn volatile. When fighting with an ex about child support, the last thing you need is a lawyer fanning the flames.

At Weinberg & Cooper, LLC, we do not fight for the sake of fighting. Instead, our goal is to get a fair child support order that gives your children the support they need, while protecting your financial health.

We strive to do this in a time- and cost-efficient manner. This is often achieved through negotiation and settlement. However, if trial is necessary we are not afraid to litigate. In fact, our attorneys are known for their skill in the courtroom — we try cases, and we get results.
