Aside from daily living expenses, there are other costs worth considering, because they are just as important to your children’s development as their basic needs. These include education expenses, day care or babysitting and medical costs, birthday parties, bar/bat mitzvah, and car expenses. While these are not specifically included in state guidelines for child support, they should still be factored in, as they can greatly affect the child’s well-being.
Negotiating child support is not always be easy, but if both parents put their child’s welfare in mind, they can get through the process as smoothly as possible. The services of reputable NJ divorce lawyers like those in Romanowski Law Offices, can be very helpful in objectively reaching an amicable settlement. Issues, after all, are just temporary; but being family is permanent.
