Calculation of Child Support When Taking Exemptions in a NJ Divorce.

Often in settlement in a New Jersey divorce, the parties alternate taking exemptions/deductions for the children.  By alternating these exemptions, generally, it changes by a small amount the child support to be paid by the non-custodial parent or parent of alternate residence.  An average of New Jersey child support guidelines run for this alternating situation may be done to deal with this issue.  If you have questions with the calculation of the New Jersey child support guidelines for the settling of your New Jersey divorce, call us at Green & Associates to set up a free consultation with our NJ divorce lawyer and NJ divorce attorney at our Fort Lee divorce or East Brunswick divorce offices at 732-390-0480 or 201-242-1119.  Night and weekend appointments are available.  


Divorce and How to Compromise on Child Support to Settle a Case

Child support in New Jersey is generally based on the New Jersey Child Support Guidelines which in turn are based on income and overnights.  If both parties in a two week period of time, where there are 14 overnights, share those overnights with the children, 7 nights for each, then generally that would be a shared physical custody parenting arrangement.  If both parties made comparable income as well, then in all likelihood little or no child support would be paid by either party.  However, if one party had more overnights than the other, in an instance where they are the parent of primary residence and the other party is the parent of alternate residence, then that party would more likely receive child support.  In addition, if the one party made more income than the other, it is more likely that the party making more in income would be paying child support.
