Dear Ask the Attorney: I am leaving my husband, but really confused about what the whole divorce proceedings entail.  So, I asked a friend who got divorced recently what the whole thing was about and she mentioned that I would have to fill out a CIS.  What is a CIS? […]

Often it is spelled out in divorce settlement agreements that once a child or children are emancipated, child support can end.

It is a common misbelief that a child is automatically emancipated at the age of 18 in the State of New Jersey and thus, one’s child support obligations are terminated when the child reaches that age, Turning 18 years old in the State of New Jersey is only a presumption that a child’s is emancipated, which can be rebutted by the parent still requiring support.
