The New Jersey Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday approved a bill that would allow for automatic termination of child support when the recipient turns age 19.

The measure, S-1046, says that support would stop by operation of law unless another age for termination is specified in an existing court order; the parents and a judge agree that support can continue until another predetermined date; a judge agrees to order continue support based on an application filed by a parent or guardian of the child; or the support recipient is in out-of-home placement through the Division of Child Protection and Permanency.
