NJ Child Support Guidelines & CIS
NJ Child Support Calculator

                    Our 25th year!

The 2019 Guidelines became effective June 1, 2019.

Because of the new tax laws regarding spousal support (alimony),
you should take care of how you fill in lines 1b, 1c, 4a, and 4b on
the 2019 forms. Any new agreements created in 2019 and later
should treat alimony as "non-taxable and non-tax-deductible."
For the Guidelines (only), the same rule applies to NJ alimony.

DivorcewareNJ:  The computer program that helps you fill out the NJ Child Support Guidelines forms, calculate the child support order, and print the necessary forms.  DivorcewareNJ was developed by Art Lieberman, Ph.D., a divorce mediator.
Used by attorneys, judges, mediators and individuals since 1995.

Note to Mac users: You can purchase Parallels (https://www.parallels.com/landingpage/pd/general/) for $80/year, which allows your Mac to run Windows programs! You would also need to purchase the Windows operating system for your Mac.
