Can I still get child support even if the obligor isn't working?

Question and Answer

Can I still get child support even if the obligor isn't working?

Yes. Unemployment is considered a temporary change and the obligor is still required to make payments. New Jersey considers unemployment income to be available for supporting children. If the obligor is receiving unemployment benefits, an order to withhold child support will be sent to the Department of Labor and Industry (Unemployment).
