KATHLEEN A. JACOBY VS. FRANK C. JACOBY A-4278-10T2

Reviewing whether child support should be reduced when a child resides on campus while attending college, we confirm that although a child's attendance at college is a change in circumstance warranting review of the child support amount, there is no presumption that a child's required financial support lessens because he or she  attends college. When faced with the question of setting child support for college students living away from home, we reinforce the principle that resort to the Child Support Guidelines (Guidelines), R. 5:6A, to make such support calculations is error as a trial court's review requires assessment of all applicable facts and circumstances and the weighing factors set forth in N.J.S.A. 2A:34-23a. 07-11-12
