With college costs at an all time high, many high school graduates have chosen to live at home and attend college as commuters.  Some students work part-time while attending college full time, and some work full time while attending college part-time.
If a child is over the age of 18, attending college part-time and working full time, that child is considered emancipated under New Jersey law and is not entitled to child support.
Even if the child is residing with a parent because his or her employment income is not sufficient to allow them to live on their own, they will be considered emancipated.
