Child Support & Alimony

Support obligations are important to both parties. The person receiving the child support or alimony will depend on adequate payments to support a certain lifestyle and to be able to obtain certain necessities. At the same time, the person paying the child support or alimony needs to know that they will have enough money left over to maintain a certain lifestyle and obtain necessities for their self.

In assigning child support obligations in New Jersey, the court takes into deliberation the best interest of the child, as well as each parent's financial means. Child support guidelines have been established to assist the court, and these guidelines are typically followed with rare exception.

At the Hackensack, NJ family law firm of Joseph L. Nackson, Attorney at Law, we take the time to review your situation and explain the guidelines to you. We have more than 30 years experience assisting mothers and fathers, whether married or not, in child support hearings.
