New Jersey’s Child Support Termination Laws
There are three circumstances in New Jersey that will result in child support termination. New Jersey’s child support legislation states that when a child reaches the age of 19 or if a child joined the military or gets married, child support obligations will be terminated. However, parents may request a child support continuation for situations such as the child attending college or university full-time.
It is important to understand that the New Jersey child support legislature changed and even if your child support agreement was written previous to this change, your agreement will still be automatically terminated when your child turns 19 untless you have specified in your child support agreement otherwise.
You do have the option to reach out to a knowledgeable child support attorney if you believe your child is still in need of financial support. An experienced attorney will lay out your options for seeking a continuation of child support. However, parents must understand that no child support agreement can be extended beyond the 23rd birthday of the child in New Jersey.
