Just because the court issued an order does not always mean that the order is permanent and unalterable. If your circumstances have significantly changed since the judgment or order was issued, you can seek a modification.

Contributing to Your Child’s College Tuition
Most states only require child support payments to be made until the child reaches 18 or 19 and is legally “emancipated.” In New Jersey, however, emancipation does not occur until the judge decides that the child is in a position where he or she should
be able to support himself or herself.
Emancipation does not occur when your child reaches 18 years of age, and until an order of emancipation is entered, there is a continuing obligation to pay child support. If your son or daughter is attending college on a full-time basis, a parent’s child
support obligation continues; indeed, a court can order you to contribute toward your child’s college education expenses. Under certain circumstances, that obligation may continue to graduate or professional school.
Our law firm has significant experience with post-judgment motions for college contributions. Every judge has a different view of what constitutes emancipation, so our extensive experience with the local judges and courts can prove a valuable aid.
