Child support is a form of monetary assistance available to parents in meeting expenses related to raising a child, and to help contribute toward the cost of food, clothing, shelter and other costs. It is vital that you seek the legal assistance of a Monmouth County divorce attorney from Amdur, Maggs & Dugan in order to maximize your chances of receiving the proper amount of child support.

The Court will take into consideration a number of factors in calculating child support, including the following:

  • The income of both parties
  • The needs of the child
  • The age of the child
  • The time each parent spends with the child
  • If either parent has other children they are responsible for
  • The State of New Jersey Child Support Guidelines
