Child Support

Lawrenceville Child Support Lawyer

Child Support Cases in Lawrenceville

In our state, both parents are obligated to provide for the support of their child. This support must continue until the child reaches 18 years of age, or graduates from high school, whichever comes later. The support must not be enforced past the age of 20, and parents do not have an obligation to provide monetary care to a child in college or pursuing post-graduate studies. However the parents decide to settle the child support terms in their divorce proceedings, the resulting agreement will be enforced by a family court as if it were law. If you are seeking a resolution to a child support matter in your divorce case, contact a Lawrenceville divorce lawyer who can provide you with dedicated legal representation in your case.

Family courts in our state consider a number of factors when deciding on an appropriate amount of child support. These factors include:

  • The child's educational costs
  • The child's medical expenses
  • Any special expenses for the child's upbringing
  • Whether or not the parents have shared physical custody
  • Day care expenses

In some cases, a court may determine that it is necessary to deviate from the standard guidelines for calculating child support. Factors that the court may consider when deciding whether or not to adjust these guidelines include:

  • Prior child support orders that are still being paid for other children
  • Self-employment taxes
  • Social security benefits that are paid for children
  • Health insurance costs
  • The need for work-related child care
