We Seek Fair Child Support Outcomes For South Jersey Parents
Whether a child is raised by single, divorced or unmarried parents, a child is never “divorced” from a parent, regardless of the status of the relationship between the two parents. The child is entitled to be supported financially by both parents. While New Jersey child support is partially governed by statutory guidelines, it is also a common source of dispute between parents involved in divorce, paternity actions and other child-related legal issues.
When you need experienced and effective legal counsel, South Jersey child support attorney Scott J. Levine has the experience and knowledge to assist you. He is available to answer your questions, explain your rights and obligations and advocate for your interests in child custody and child support disputes in New Jersey.

- Work-related day care costs
- Health insurance coverage for the child
- Number of children being supported
