Nj law on dating minors
If you are paying directly, you can simply stop paying support when your child turns 19, and the custodial parent will have to come to court to seek a continuation (although you should be careful about terminating if you know there is a legitimate reason to continue support).
If you pay through the probation department, you will receive a notice about five months prior to the child’s 19 birthday, wherein the custodial parent will be tasked with identifying a reason for the continue of support.
Specifically, the new NJ emancipation law establishes 19 as the age when a child support obligation will end.
It does allow child support and/or medical support to continue up to age 23 in cases where the child is either still in high school, attending college or vocational school full-time, is disabled, if the parties reached a different agreement, or if the court finds another compelling reason to continue support.
In essence, this new law shifts the burden to the custodial parent.
Parents who break these laws could be charged for medical bills and property damage and could be sued for emotional pain and suffering.The primary change to the law is that the burden will be on the parent receiving child support to explain why child support should continue.Prior to the new NJ Emancipation law, the paying parent had to come to court to ask for child support to be terminated.In addition to lawsuits, parents in New Jersey may find themselves subject to criminal prosecution for underage drinking by their teen and their teen's friends.
(see exemptions under 2C:33-17b, and Woodcliff Lake Borough Ordinance 179-27) In addition, parents may be held responsible even if they're not at home when underage drinking occurs.
They may also be held responsible if underage drinking takes place anywhere on their property.
