Essex County Emancipation Attorneys

Our Essex County Emancipation Attorneys can help you with your emancipation motion in the Essex County Family Court. This is an important motion because child support and/or an obligation to pay college expenses, does not automatically end in New Jersey. If you do nothing about it, your child support will never end! In order for you to stop your child support support obligations, you must ask a New Jersey Superior Court Judge to emancipate your child. This is done by filing a motion for emancipation with the Essex County Family Court. It shocks most people to learn that without a judge granting this motion, your child support will continue forever!

Exactly when a child may be emancipated can be difficult to ascertain, even for an attorney. While children who are not in college are not automatically emancipated at 18 years old, it is a good starting point. However, it does not end the analysis. Motion practice in Essex County Superior Court can be complicated for a pro se litigant. Our Essex County lawyers have met many clients who tried it on their own and failed which only makes it more expensive for them in the long run. That's why it makes sense to invest in a Essex County emancipation attorney to make sure that the motion is done right the first time.

Essex County Emancipation Attorneys

A child who does not go to school full time or who graduates college may be emancipated. However, this is also not automatic. Because families are so dynamic, two Essex County family court judges may come to two different decisions regarding emancipation on very similar cases. Additional questions are also raised with special needs children as well as children attending law school or graduate school. As a result, it is important that you get a team of tough and aggressive Essex County emancipation attorneys at the law offices of Jef Henninger, Esq. on your side. Our Essex County lawyers back down to no one and will fight for you!
