New Jersey Child Support Guidelines
When determining the amount of child support and which parent will pay it, the court uses certain guidelines. These guidelines are designed to benefit the child, putting his or her best interests first.

The child support guidelines take into account a variety of factors, including:

  • Each parent’s income
  • Overnights spent with the child
  • The child’s share of either parent’s health insurance plan
  • General childcare costs

In determining the amount of support the non-custodial parent will pay, the child support guidelines include various expenses.

The guidelines include a percentage for the following:

  • housing;
  • utilities;
  • transportation;
  • food;
  • clothing;
  • medical bills;
  • necessities; and/or
  • extracurricular activities.

There are certain exceptions, as the guidelines are based on most middle-class families in the state of New Jersey. The court may deviate from the guidelines in certain circumstances, for instance, if a child has special needs that require extensive medical expenses. In other instances, the child support guidelines are not applicable, including cases of high-net-worth parents whose combined income exceeds $187,000.00/year. In any case, the court is required to review all child support agreements in order to ensure that the amount paid is enough to provide for the needs of the child.
