Guidance In Child Support Cases

In New Jersey, child support is determined by statute and by guidelines based upon a family's income, as well as the child's best interests.

At Newsome O'Donnell, LLC, the attorneys are knowledgeable of the curt guidelines and statutory factors in terms of fixing child support. They will sit down with you and discuss the actual needs and expenses of raising your children. The attorneys will also take into consideration the costs of having a child with special needs or special talents.

The New Jersey child support attorneys work diligently to devise a child support payment arrangement that accommodates a particular family's needs.

One Size Does Not Fit All

When the attorneys work on any aspect of your divorce, they take into account your needs and goals and those of your children, and apply the law to fit your unique situation, not the other way around. The attorneys always look for the solution that is best for you and your children.

At Newsome O'Donnell, LLC, the attorneys discuss the kind of lifestyle you maintained before the divorce and the reasonableness of the requested expenditures. The attorneys will gather the facts of the case and use them to strategize arguments for, or against, the requested amount of child support.

You and your spouse may choose to retain joint legal custody, which gives you both the ability to make decisions for your children and requires that you discuss major changes in their lives.

Understanding The Child Support Collection Process

If your spouse is failing to pay his or her monthly child support payments, the lawyers at Newsome O'Donnell, LLC, can assist you with child support enforcement by petitioning the court for an enforcement of court orders, which may result in your spouse being held in contempt of court and enable garnishment of his or her wages or assets to ensure payment.

If you are on the receiving end of a child support enforcement petition, the attorneys will defend your position and help you apply for a modification of court orders to alter your monthly payments if your circumstances have changed.
