Termination of Child Support
On January 19, 2016, Governor Christie signed S-1046/A-2721 into law. This law establishes 19 as the age when child support will end. The new law allows for child support to continue up to age 23 for cases where the child still in high school; attending full-time college, vocational or graduate school; is disabled; if the parties reached a separate agreement; or, if continued support was granted by the court. The effective date of the law is February 1, 2017, and applies to all child support orders. Contact my office to discuss how this law may affect you and your children.
