Most people in New Jersey assume “child support” is referred to as such for a reason, i.e., that legal adults are no longer entitled to receive financial support and that a parent’s obligation to pay automatically terminates once their child reaches a certain age. Unfortunately for those parents paying child support in this state, that is simply not the case. Frequently, parents continue to pay support long after the child has reached the age of emancipation, or they resort to self-help by simply terminating child support payments without obtaining the appropriate court order. Thankfully, the New Jersey legislature recognized this problem, and in 2016 passed a law in hopes of rectifying the issue. The new statute goes into effect Feb. 1, 2017, and will impact all current child support awards, making it an important change for practitioners to be aware of.
