Successful Essex County Divorce Lawyer
Every child has a right to be supported by both parents — whether the parents are married, unmarried or divorced.

These determinations can cause equal anxiety for both parents.

If you have questions about establishing child support, contesting paternity or resolving other child support-related legal matters, contact the Law Offices of Jill Anne LaZare, LLC, or call the New Jersey office at (908) 219-4366.
New Jersey Child Support
Attorney LaZare assists clients in understanding New Jersey child support guidelines, advises them of what the appropriate amount of child support will likely be and effectively represents their interests. In New Jersey, child support is calculated based upon:
- Incomes of each parent
- Number of children
- Number of children being supported through other child support orders
- Percentage of time each parent has with the child/children (a parent with significant visitation may have a reduced child support obligation)
- Child care expenses
- Uncovered medical expenses
As an experienced and knowledgeable Summit child support lawyer, Attorney LaZare thoroughly reviews proposed child support orders to identify if income calculations are inaccurate due to under-reported income, unreported income and other factors that should have been taken into consideration when establishing child support. Additionally, she is adept at advising clients in matters involving child support modifications and child support enforcement.
As a strong litigator, Attorney LaZare knows when a case should be brought to trial or resolved through alternative means. She is dedicated to minimizing litigation costs whenever possible and being available to answer all questions about child support or other family law issues promptly.
