NJ Child Support Guidelines & CIS
NJ Child Support Calculator

Updates to the Guidelines are issued in April or May each year.
Every few years, there is an additional update in September.
The 2018 version of DivorcewareNJ is to be used until April or May of 2019.

Because of the new tax laws regarding spousal support (alimony),
you should take care of how you fill in lines 1b, 1c, and 4.

The professional version of DivorcewareNJ is downloaded and installed directly onto your computer. This version allows for an unlimited number of cases. Also included are forms for the Case Information Statement and the Uniform Summary Support Order.

This Profession version can be used from multiple computers in your building and the data can be shared among users. (It is not Internet-based.)
