(Rules Appendices IX-A, IX-B, IX-H)

Published with this Notice is the Supreme Court's February 14, 2006 order adopting amendments to certain of the Appendices to the Rules Governing the Courts of the State of New Jersey relating to the Child Support Guidelines, effective immediately, as follows: (a) Appendix IX-A ("Considerations in the Use of Child Support Guidelines"); (b) Appendix IX-B ("Use of the Child Support Guidelines - General Information; Line Instructions for the Sole-Parenting Worksheet; Line Instructions for the Shared-Parenting Worksheet"); and (c) Appendix IX-H ("Combined Tax Withholding Tables for Use with the [Child] Support Guidelines").
