Child Support And Alimony

Determining Child Support Obligations Given Your Family's Situation

The New Jersey Family Court uses a set of specific guidelines which can be found in Appendix IX-A of the New Jersey Court Rules when determining child support. In general, these guidelines are utilized in the majority of cases and are based on the individual incomes of each parent.

There are numerous other factors that must be taken into account when calculating the guidelines, such as parenting time and exceptional medical needs. Additional costs of child-care, unreimbursed medical expenses, health insurance, life insurance and living expenses will need to be addressed as well. Similarly, educational costs for private school, college, or other post high school education for the children will be considered.

South Orange/Maplewood child support and alimony lawyer Nancy S. Feinberg assists clients in understanding how these guidelines and other costs should be considered depending on your circumstances. She provides dedicated advocacy during the initial divorce process as well as in any post-decree child support modifications that may be necessary due to a significant change in circumstances.

Understanding Alimony

One of the most acrimonious aspects of any divorce case can be alimony. Either the husband and wife may be eligible to receive alimony from their spouse. We are experienced in representing you, whether you may have to pay alimony or you may be entitled to receive it.

Nancy is well aware that alimony is an issue that requires serious analysis because, unlike child support, there are no specific guidelines. There are numerous factors that need to be considered when determining if alimony is warranted, and if so, how is it calculated and how long it will be paid and received. There are many kinds of alimony as well.

We will review your circumstances such as your marital lifestyle, your individual incomes and potential incomes, your expenses and the length of your marriage, among other factors, in order to assist you in determining what you can expect. We understand that this is a daunting issue and will protect your rights while seeking the best possible results.
