The New Child Support Termination Law: What it Means to You

New Jersey is just one of two states that does not have a predetermined timeframe for child support obligations to end.  It has been the responsibility of the parties to file an application and have the court make that determination on a case-by-case basis.  However, on January 19, 2016, Governor Christie signed a law, which goes into effect February 1, 2017, that automatically terminates the obligation to pay child support when a child turns 19 years old, marries, dies, or enters the military.  In limited circumstances, the support can continue until the child is 23 years old.  Please join us for an informational session entitled “The New Child Support Termination Law: What it Means to You” to learn more about this legislation, the timeframes associated with this new law, and how this may affect you. The presenters are; Court Services Supervisor Jennifer Black, Assistant Family Division Manager Sharyn Sherman, and Senior Probation Officer Danielle Lewis from the Burlington Vicinage Superior Court.
