Family-Focused, Compassionate Representation

Helping You Resolve Child Support Issues

In every New Jersey divorce that involves a child, child support must be resolved. A child support formula determines what child support will be. A fairly complex set of factors goes into determining what support payments, if any, will be awarded. That is why it is essential to have knowledgeable and experienced family law counsel at your side to make sure your child support is calculated and enforced fairly.

When You Need A Modification, We Can Help

If one parent has a substantial change in life circumstances, this may be cause for a modification of child support or child custody. Changes include: significant increase or decrease in income, chronic illness, relocation to another state, or a situation where the custody arrangement is no longer working.

If you are being refused visitation rights on a consistent basis or if you are not receiving your child support, retain a knowledgeable child support attorney.
