Emancipate Child Support at 18 Years Old
Petition Background (Preamble):
NJ currently has an antiquated law that allows a Judge(Glorified Lawyer) to keep Parents arguing over Child Support, in turn allowing Lawyers to keep charging fees to the Parents while they keep them arguing. If the Law is passed to Emancipate at 18 then 50% of the time in court and legal fees that Lawyers are charging the parents are drastically reduced. If a young adult can be drafted into the military and risk life or limb at 18 then they are full fledged adults.
If they commit a crime then they are tried as adults not as a child(as in "Child" Support). A Judge(Glorified Lawyer) has no right to force a married couple to pay for an 18 year old adult's secondary education but they are give the "power" to make divorced couples do it. Isn't that discriminatory? Time to update the antiquated laws that allow the Judges(Glorified Lawyers) to preserve their Profession and give the Lawyers the right to make people go broke instead of really caring about the children. www.emancipatenj.com
This means ALL child support STOPS when your kid reaches 18 years old. Plus NO judge can order you to pay for their college!
They have trodden the Constitutions of both the US and NJ by ignoring separation and segregation of governmental powers as we all learned in 7th grade civics class. By their action, the NJ Judiciary has violated the civil and parental rights of hundreds of thousands of NJ and non-NJ citizens of our country.
In response to being slapped around by the Judiciary, the NJ Legislature had cobbled together laws that dance around the entire issue of emancipation, allowing the Judiciary to usurp their constitutional responsibility to legislate the law.
