In the state of New Jersey, we use the child support guidelines in order to determine child support. The child support guidelines take into consideration the parents’ incomes, any expenses for the children such as health insurance premiums, day care, any extraordinary expenses, and any overnights the parent of alternate residence would have with the children. Once all that information is put into the child support guidelines, it does a formula and essentially tells us what the child support amount is. That’s how child support is calculated in New Jersey.
