Divorce cases involving child custody and child support in New Jersey and New York must work in accordance with the guidelines of the state. At DAME Legal, we will use our expert knowledge of the state’s guidelines to help you best understand your financial responsibility to your children and the amount of child support to which you may be entitled.
We begin this process with discovery. In any divorce case, a full and truthful inventory of the assets and finances between the separating couple must be compiled. After discovery, it is much easier to establish a divorce plan that includes suitable child support payments that accurately reflect your child’s real-life needs.
Child support payment is not always cut and dry. While some couples may agree on basic child support payments for the essential needs of the child, some cases are inherently more complex. In cases of private school tuition, summer camp, after-school activities, sports, and travel, some parents may be entitled to heftier child support payments that adequately factor in your child’s unique needs.
We will work within New Jersey and New York’s suggested guidelines to achieve a result that best allows your child to thrive under their changing circumstances.
