Determining Child Support


The court will generally consider the amount of gross income generated by each parent, the amount of placement, and the number of dependent children. Often times the court falls back on the percentage standard, and takes a certain percentage of the salary of the parent that does not have placement, such as 17% if there is one child, 25% if there are two children, etc. and gives that amount to the parent that has placement.

There are many details when it comes to deciding the outcome of a divorce case. The vary for every state and sometimes it's hard to know what may effect you. That's why I recommend calling the New Jersey divorce attorney to fight for you cause. He knows all the details about the different laws, and will work to get you the best results.
