Law Lessons from C.D., A.P., AND D.D. VS. N.D.M. AND A.L., App. Div., A-1944-11T4, January 8, 2013:

Child support is generally appropriate when a child is placed in the custody of relatives. Child Support Guidelines, Pressler & Verniero, Current N.J. Court Rules, Appendix IX-A to R. 5:6A at 2558 (2013). Short-term stays with relatives, however, are ordinarily outside the scope of child support orders, although extended visits between parents, or a Division of Child Protection and Permanency (Division) placement, may result in the adjustment or imposition of support. See id. at 2551-53 (explaining that a non-custodial supporting parent may be entitled to child support adjustments or abatement for extended visitation time) and N.J.S.A. 30:4C-29.1(a) (stating that when a child is placed in the Division’s custody, a legally responsible parent for the child is liable for costs incurred as a result of the Division caring for the child).
