Frequently Asked Questions

Can I get a copy of the Guidelines?

A: Sure, but get ready for some heavy reading. The complete text and charts of the Guidelines is more than 100 pages (in full-size type). The Guidelines in NJ are a Court Rule. The Rule number is 5:6A (the actual charts are an Appendix to the Rule, in the the back of the Court Rules Book). Most major libraries in the State have a copy that you can read or photocopy. All law libraries in the courthouses have public copies. They are also available on the Internet at http://www.judiciary.state.nj.us/csguide/index.htm.
