New Jersey Child Support

The New Jersey Child Support Program

“There is a national commitment to child support and to accomplish this, federal and state laws work together. In New Jersey, the child support program is supervised by the state Department of Human Services, Division of Family Development, Office of Child Support Services, and is administered in individual counties. Most of your business will be handled at county offices.” — NJDHS

Overview

The New Jersey Child Support Program is a state-supervised and county-administered program that provides support for children in need. The program works to ensure that children receive the financial support and child support payments they need from their non-custodial parent or parents, through various enforcement mechanisms.

New Jersey’s child support program provides a variety of services to custodial and non-custodial parents, including:

  •  Establishing paternity
  •  Locating absent parents
  •  Establishing and enforcing child support orders
  •  Collecting and distributing child support payments
  •  Modifying child support orders when necessary

If you are a non-custodial parent and you need help establishing or enforcing a child support order, the New Jersey Office of Child Support Services can help. They can provide you with information about the program and help you to navigate the process.

If you are a custodial parent and need help collecting child support from the non-custodial parent, the New Jersey Office of Child Support Services can assist. They can also give information about the program as well as assistance with the application process, New Jersey child support guidelines, calculating child support and other concerns.

The New Jersey child support program is committed to helping children in need, and works to ensure that they receive the financial support they are entitled to. If you are a custodial or non-custodial parent in need of child support services, please contact your local county office for more information.
