When Can I Stop Paying Child Support in Bergen County?

You can stop paying support in New Jersey when a court determines that a child is no longer dependent on their parents for support.  The spouse who is paying the support must apply to a court for this determination because NJ law does not say that a child is emancipated upon reaching a certain age.  The law will change in February of 2017 to state that a child is presumed emancipated upon reaching the age of 19 unless the custodial parent can rebut this presumption.
