Family Law Attorneys Representing Parents in Child Support Cases in Trenton, Hamilton and Throughout Mercer County and Beyond
During a divorce or broken relationship, issues regarding child support, custody, and visitation are often the most emotionally charged. Both parents may want what is in their children’s best interests, but in cases involving child support, other factors usually prohibit a mutual decision from being reached.

Understanding Child Support Laws in New Jersey and Pennsylvania
Both New Jersey and Pennsylvania determine child support using the “Income Shares” method, which means child support amounts are based on the combined income of both parents. Other factors the court may take into consideration are, as follows:
- Work-Related Day-Care Expenses
- Health Insurance Costs
- Special Needs of the Child
- Voluntary Underemployment of the Noncustodial Parent
- Amount of Overnight Visitation/Parenting Time
- Other Dependents or Child Support Obligations
It is vital for noncustodial parents to stay current on monthly support payments, or they will be charged with contempt based on nonpayment of child support. If either parent’s situation changes, it is important to apply to the court for modifications as soon as possible because adjustments will not be made retroactively.
