Calculating Child Support Payments
Although it is impossible to predict the exact results of your case, there are certain factors which can be used to make a prediction. In most cases, the non-custodial parent will be ordered to make child support payments to the parent with primary custody. The exact amount is generally determined based on the child custody agreement, as well as which parent has the ability to pay more.
A few of the factors which may be used to calculate child support include:
- Each parent's income and earning ability
- Each parent's education level and job
- Each parent's ability to spend time with the child
- The existing or proposed child custody agreement
Do You Have to Pay Child Support if You Have 50/50 Custody in NJ?
Yes, the parent with the higher income will be required to pay child support with 50/50 custody in New Jersey. Although that parent makes payments to child support to the parent with the lower income, the court will award the higher paying parent more time, including overnight time.
