New Jersey Law on Emancipation
The New Jersey law on emancipation is probably more complicated than any other state. In most states, there is an automatic cut off for child support at a certain age. In New Jersey, child support will go on forever unless and until a court signs an order emancipating the child. In face, the law is so complicated sometimes that our lawyers have seen judges get the law completely wrong. That’s why its so important to hire an aggressive lawyer for your emancipation issue.
The best time to look at an emancipation issue is when the child is 18 years old. The first question is whether or not the child is or will be going to college. The next question is whether or not the child is going to school full time. If the child is going to school full time, the child will not be emancipated. The problem many people have is that they don’t know if the child is going to school full time if at all because there is no communication. Our emancipation lawyers can help you sort all this out so that you get all of the information you need to know when is the right time to file the motion.
If you don’t handle your emancipation case the right way, you may wind up paying child support for a longer than necessary period of time. Don’t throw your money away or deal with warrants.
