Do I have to fight a request for child support reinstatement in New Jersey, with an attorney in NJ, if I live in New York?

  • By: David Bliven

Q: Can an ex-wife throw your daughter out of her house into the streets and still be entitled to child support? Basically I live in the Bronx, and the x-wife lives in New Jersey and she has gotten a lawyer in Jersey who put me on notice of their intent. Will I need a lawyer in NJ to go represent me?

A: Question: was the original child support done in NY or NJ? If the latter, then you’d need to consult a NJ attorney on the question. If done in NY, however, then the answer is “maybe,” depending in part on the age of the child, whether she may be deemed emancipated and/or whether she moves in with you. If the case is in NY, then call a Bronx Child Support attorney to schedule a consult for a full assessment.
